I just received this email which even looks genuine from the headers.
Don't be fooled. This scam has been doing the rounds for ages:
I came down here to Athens, Greece All cash, Credit card and cell were stolen off me but luckily for me I still have my passports with me. My flight leaves in a couple of hours but am having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until i settle the bills, I need you to loan me £1,840 GBP. I'll refund it to you as soon as i arrive home.Write me back so i can tell you how to get it to me.
