[email protected] the account has been compromised, all people in the original account owner's contact list are now being spammed with this:

I am currently in Lisbon Portugal, most of my belongings including my phone
and personal effects have been stolen from me. I may need some assistance
from you.

Please let me know if you can help.


It is increasingly common for scammers to trick people out of their passwords for their email or other online services.

For certain, anyone who replies and receives a request to send money by some insecure method such as Western Union or Money-gram would then potentially fall victim.

If in any doubt, contact the owner of the mail by other means, or their family - to ascertain the truth of the claim.
