Exclamation Notice: Harold @ HPAutowerks

Does anyone know if Harold is in London?

I just received an email from Harold stating that he is in London and his valuables have been stolen. It seems like a scam from someone other than he.

I'm hoping the real Harold will hop on and alert us. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who received this email.

I got the same thing and at first thought he sent it to the wrong group, like emailing business contacts instead of family contacts.

Its a curious phishing attempt as it has no web links, just the shops website and email address like a typical business sig (all in plain text).

Yeah, I figured it was a scam that's why I wanted the "real" Harold to post. Thanks.

Just hoping this email reaches you...Well,i'm sorry for this emergency and for not informing you about my urgent trip to London,United Kingdom but I just have to let you know my present predicament. Everything was fine until I was attacked on my way back to the hotel, I wasn't hurt but I lost my money, bank cards, mobile phone and my bag in the course of this attack....I immediately contacted my bank in order to block my cards and also made a report at the nearest police station. I've been to the embassy and they are helping me with my documentation so i can fly out but I'm urgently in need of some help from you to pay up my hotel bills and my flight ticket back home...My return flight back home is scheduled to leave in few hours from now...Now am freaked out....Please i need your help..

Hope to read from you soon.

Thanks and Regards.
