Does anyone know if Leonard Pickel is in the UK, London area? I got a strange email from his email which made me think someone hijacked his computer and is trying to SCAM money from people. Does anyone know where Leonard is? Someone might have stolen his labtop computer.

Hello,
I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get to you too urgent but it's because of the situation of things right now, I am stuck in London ,UK with Family . We came down here for a short vacation and got robbed, worse of it is that bags, cash, cards and phones were stolen at GUN POINT, it's such a crazy experience for me and my family .We need help flying back home, the authorities are not being 100% supportive but the good thing is we still have our passport but don't have enough money to get our flight ticket straightened out and sort some bills here, please we need you to loan us some money,I will refund you as soon as I'm back home, I give you my word.

Thanks
Leonard

I emailed the guy and said I would pay if he called me... he sent back this email...

Glad you replied back,We have nothing left on us right now and we're lucky to have our lifes and passports with us it would have been worse if they had made away with our passport. Its really miserable here without a phone which limits us to email communication.


Well all we need now is just 1,250, you can have it wired to my name via Western Union i'll have to show my passport as ID to pick it up here and i promise to pay you back as soon as we get back home. Here's my info below.


Leonard Pickel
London, United Kingdom.


As soon as it has been done, kindly get back to me with the confirmation number.


Let me know if you are heading to the WU outlet now??. You can call the hotel to talk to me +447024029616 rm 302

Thanks
Leonard

I was listening to a radio station dj once that got pretty much the same e-mail - also from London. He knew it was a scam so he played along with no intention of ever sending money. He made up some fake confirmation code, etc and just messed with the scammer. I don't know who you can report it to, if anyone.

But here's an article on the scam:

Yep, Jen from TW just confirmed this is a bad fraud account. You should have read my reply, hee,hee,hee.
It involved telling this idiot to Blah Blah barn Animals.

Just my style, I hate these jerks.

Thankfully, Leonard is safe..

I hope this is turned into the FBI or something because whomever did this should go to prison... if this happened to me I would call the FBI for sure.

The FBI is the right agency to call on this because its over state lines... this is just wrong.

I just spoke with Leonard and he said he is not in the Uk and was not robbed. He is going to speak with the FBI cyber crimes unit. He said he will be at Hauntcon. I think we all need to make up a tee shirt and wear it that says WILL THE REAL LEONARD PICKLE PLEASE STAND UP. I case you are to young that was the trade mark line from the TV show to tell the truth.

I figured something must be off....Leonard going to England????
Does he always DRIVE?????

Also why do you need money to arrange for tickets?
No one goes to Europe without a round trip ticket.
So all they need is the passport to get new tickets issued.

I agree the bastards should be caught and hung out to dry!!!

Everyone have fun at TW!!!!

Yeah, the "To: Undisclosed Recipients" was a give-away that the sender didn't want anyone to know how many hundred others were getting a copy.

I looked at the message header, and it appears to have originated in Lagos, Nigeria.

And now, back to packing all the stuff going to St. Louis...

Same exact thing happened to one of my teachers a couple of months ago and she got the same reaction from everyone on her email.

The hacker used england as well.

Hundreds of people called her asking her if she was okay, even the bills quarter back i mean ex quarter back Trent Edwards. Some were even on the brink of sending the hacker money.

AND THE SCAMMING CONTINUES.....

I received the following e-mail this morning from yet another individual who was also supposedly mugged in London, England.

"I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,my fam and I came down here to London,England 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 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."

"Am freaked out at the moment."

No, I sent this to the dip that is using his e-mail but, your right it did go to leonards e-mail address so leonard would be able to see it. I'm sure leonard knows that it was not for him but for the con artist.

You sent this message to Leonard?

You just validated the fact you have a working email address... you'd be amazed how easy it is to gain info about your full name from your email headers, or your IP address....once the perp has your full name or IP address from doing a simple whois lookup, they can pump your name into this website and voila! Instant info about you....identity thief's best Christmas gift...check it for yourself...go to this site and put in your full name....creepy. Just delete the messages...never reply!
