    hope this is somewhere near the right thread . Has anyone here seen the scam which states " your loved one has had an rta abroad and is in a coma you will need to send money for his care because the insurance will not pay up ? "
    I have seen it on a 419 eater site and PC Active mag but cant find the links .
    On a sapper site on Facebook some chap is saying that an ex marine is going through this coma cash thing in Thailand . I believe the sapper is honest but not the folks who are asking for the dosh .
    cheers troops .
