I'm currently in London, so haven't been around much. But I got an email out-of-the-blue from the wife of a good friend who lives in BKK. The origin email address all looked kosher, but I know them well enough to know it was a scam. Someone has hijacked their email, and it even looks correct on reply. Clever stuff, and a timely warning to treat any request for cash, even from someone you know well, as suspicious. Double-check, triple-check, use WhatsApp etc. as they are encrypted.

This conversation is ongoing, but here's the state of play. Start at the bottom and work up. I've removed my details (surname, email) as this is an open forum, but you guys all know who I am:

Hi Richard,
 
Okay well noted. I will contact them and give you feedback.
 
Thank you.
 
Sunny

Hi Sunny
 
Could you contact your friends the recruitment agents? Ben Dover and Phil MacKavity? They are very hands-on in Nana Plaza and know all the ladies and boys. If they can pack a handful over to us we can get the sacks well and truly emptied. Those boys can sort it in the flick of a wrist!

Hi Stunny
 
A disaster! Our head fudge packer, Randy, was going at it hammer and tongues so hard that he's become trapped in the glory hole. I've got the specialists from Lady and Boy coming to release him; they say they'll have to dismantle the jizzum spacker and Randy will lose his entire load.
 
I'll try and sort the transfer, but I'm so worried about Randy. He's been a rock.

Hi Richard,
 
Thanks for your help. No i do not have the agent's number. Yes, the payment is for the special lubricant.
Yes, we have rebranded it, so sorry. Since you have Spanish account, it will be very easy, just make the transfer today and send me the transfer copy. I am waiting for the transfer copy.
 
Good luck my dear friend.

Dear Sunny
 
Thanks for your email. Do you have a phone number for the agent in Spain? I have a Spanish bank hackount which might be easier for me to use.
 
Is this payment for the special lubricant you mentioned; the one you were storing in the back passage? I seem to remember it was slippery as fuck! Did you rebrand it Katoey Ease-it-In as planned?
 
I'm packing fudge; wish me luck.

It's moved on already. They are chasing hard for payment.

Hi Sunny
 
I think I have a solution to the problem. I have spoken to the guys in India who provide all the call girls and administration for me. They say they can help.
 
The company is called Rist Deep Fistding in Lawhore. They sort payments all the time, and only charge by the hour.
 
My contact is a Mr Handan Arm. Which email address should I give him – he needs to contact you for Dew Deligence purposes.
 
Hugs
 
Rickie

Monday Update:

I was getting bored trying to think of obvious/ insulting things to write to these crooks, so I pushed it - I asked for eu2500 commission. On a eu5000 transaction. And, surprise surprise, they agreed.

So I told them I needed a copy of 'Sunny's' passport. That killed it.

My friend in BKK has written to the Spanish bank (he is a former banker, which helps). It was his email that had been hacked; another of his contacts had exactly the same thing (and probably more who now think Sunny is not the person they thought she was).
