A CRY FOR HELP FROM TURKEY!



I got the following phishing email claiming to be from Paul Gulacy; comics legend famous for his art on Batman, Shang Chi Master of Kung-Fu among other classics:


Hello!
I'm sorry you're getting the mail from me at this Point in time,my family and I came down here to Antalya,Turkey for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel we stayed,all cash credit cards and cell were stolen off  but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.
I have been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves pretty soon 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.Please be so kind to reply back so I can tell you what to do and how to get some cash to us.
I'm freaked out at the moment
 
I replied with:
 
Paul,

This is terrible! What can I do to help?
And how is little Gracie bearing up under this? 

Chuck

That sparked the following exchange:

(keep in mind that "Gracie" is someone I invented.)

Am so glad you responded. All I need right now is 2,450 Dollars, I'll appreciate what you can give if not all and I promise to make the refund once I get back home.

You can wire money to my name from a western union around you,You will have to locate the nearest Western Union Outlet or Walmart around you.
Here are the details you need to get it to me;

Receiver's Name : Paul Gulacy
Receiver's Address: Gürsu, Atatürk Blv. No:3, 07070 Konyaalti/ Antalya, Turkey


You will have to get back to me with the confirmation number as soon as you are done with the transfer, so that i can pick it up over here with my passport. Thanks a lot, am really glad that you can help and will surely get the money back to you immediately as i get back home.

Let me know when you are heading to the western union office.

Paul

Paul,

I'll get down to the Wal-Mart in the next few hours. Have a few things to do here first. Just shanked a ball into the rough on hole six. You know what THAT'S like! Jack laughed like a hyena, like he always does. What a prick.

Please tell me how little Gracie's bearing up under all this. She IS with you, right? I'm very concerned about her.

Hold on, help is coming!
 

 
Chuck

Thank so much for your concern over getting me back home. We both fine here we just need a loan from you to settle our bill out here to and get back home, i promise to pay back all the cost once am back home, Kindly proceed with the transfer when you are free and get back to me with the W.Union MTCN# Confirmation number for the pick up fund

I owe you alot....Thanks

Paul
 
 
Paul,

Heading to the Wal-Mart right after lunch. Jack insists I buy him a shrimp plate at the clubhouse after the sound thrashing he gave me. I really thought I had him until he went on some kind of mad streak on the back nine. He'll probably want me to stand him a few drinks as well so there may be a slight delay because I'll need to drive him home. The lush.

And then, of course, I'll need to ask someone where the Wal-mart is. I've never been. 

And do tell me what's going on with little Gracie. I really am concerned with her well-being in the face of the events you described earlier.

All the best! Hang on! Funds are almost there!

Chuck
 
 
Nothing wrong with Gracie we both alright am freaked out at this moment can't even think straight try and understand my present situation. we going to see each order when i get home.

Keep me posted once you are done..

Thanks,

Paul  
 
 
Paul,

Will be heading to the Wal-Mart soon. Jack is three sheets to the wind and in the middle of that story about the time Bruce pushed him into the fountain at Sundance. I know YOU'VE heard it a thousand times. 

Pleased to hear that little Gracie is all right. Miniature schnauzers are so high strung, I was concerned that her tiny heart might stop. 

Shoving off in thirty or so to send off that moneygram. Hang tight, keep your sails trimmed and look for that confirmation number.

Chuck

ps---did you manage to pick up that special item I asked you buy for me in Ankara? 
 
Stay tuned!

  1. According to an e-mail I received earlier today, it appears that "Paul Gulacy" is now stuck in the Philippines with no money. He just has no luck on vacations!
