I received an e-mail from my friend address and the full name was his name. The note was to ask for help. I checked with Foreign Ministry and they say this kind of e-mail fraud has been conducted by hackers. The e-mail says " I am on my vacation with my family and was robbed. The local authority is not 100% supportive...etc. etc."
If you receive this kind of e-mail, please check with the ministry and report it to them. The address and name looked like my friend's, so at first, you are probably not sure.
Don't send money, your country's authority will support your friends.
