Yahoo Account Hacked

Here is an email from a client who got his yahoo account hacked. My client likely had a poor password for his yahoo account so the hacker eventually discovered it. Once in the account, they use that client’s email addresses to them an alarming email. The purpose of this email is to have the friend wire the hacker 3 thousand dollars. 

The next day I got the same email from a different person I didn’t know.

Hello

    This message is coming to you with great depression due to my state of discomfort. I came down here to Dublin Ireland with my family for a short vacation but unfortunately, we were mugged and robbed at the park of the hotel where we stayed. All cash, credit cards and Mobile phones were stolen off us but we still have our lives and passports.

We’ve been to the embassy and the police here and they have done the best they can. Our flight leaves in less than 12hrs from now but we are having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let us leave until we settle the bills which is (2,980USD). I am contacting you to ask for a short loan which I will refund immediately I get my family back home safely.

Let me know if you can help.

Thanks
