I am in hurry writing you this message and i hope you get it on time, sorry I didn't inform you about my trip in Malaysia for a Program. It has been a very sad and bad moment for me here, the present condition that i found myself is very hard for me to explain. I am really stranded here in Malaysia because I was attacked and robbed on the way to my hotel, all cash, document's and cell phone which i have all my contacts were stolen off me. 

Presently I have limited access to internet, I will like you to assist me urgently with a soft loan of $2,500 US dollars to sort-out my hotel bills and to get myself back home. I have spoken to the embassy here but they are not responding to the matter effectively, I will appreciate whatever you can afford to assist me with, I'll Refund the money back to you as soon as i get home without any delay. Please use the details below to send the money to me via Western Union money transfer because that is the only way i could be able to get the money fast and leave. Here's my info below...

Name: [Name of the Person]
Address: 40 - 42 Jalan Radin Tengah, Kuala Lumpur ,Malaysia 

After you have send the money, email to me the western union money transfer control number or you can attach and forward to me the western union money transfer receipt so that i can pick up the money fast and leave.

Thanks and get back to me soon with the transfer details so that i can leave.

Best regards,

[Name of the Person]
