I received the following e mail this morning and am aware that it has been sent to others in Nick’e contact list as well. Nick has asked that this warning be posted so no one makes the mistake of getting scammed by this:

I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,my family and I came down here to Wales,United Kingdom for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash,credit card and cell were stolen off us but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.
We've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping the issues at all and our flight leaves in less than 3hrs from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills,I'm freaked out at the moment..yeah

Bad deal, I got it from my travel agent a while back. I called her and she said someone had hacked her account.
This piece of info would have been most useful prior to me wiring the $$
He knows I'm a hard sell so he sent it to me 3x today! He's so damn impatient besides how do I know that the money isn't going towards the marketing of Statement boats. Sneaky bastard!
Bob, I don't get it. What did they steal from Nick?????

I was a little confused by your post.
Just got off the phone with Nick.
He wasn't in Wales, somebody stole his e-mail address book and sent that story to everyone on the list thinking we would all be kind enough to wire him money.
