I received a fraudulent email this morning which appears somewhat legitimate, and think it important to pass it along. Please see below.

I’m are writing this with tears in our eyes. i came down here to London , United Kingdom for a short vacation unfortunately i got mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed, all cash, credit card and cell phone were stolen from me but luckily for us i still have our passport with me.
I have been to the embassy and the Police here but they’re not helping issues at all and my flight leaves in few hours from now but i am having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let me leave until i settle the bills,
i need urgent help.I’m freaked out at the moment.
Again, this is a scam. If you receive this email, you should ignore it . Do not respond and/or share any personal information including your social security number, date of birth, credit card number, or any other personal information.
