Appeal to my friends and relatives




Dear friends,

My gmail id was compromised, and somebody has sent a fake mail to all my contacts stating as though I am stranded in Scotland. Many friends and relatives contacted me over the phone and got confirmed that it was a bogus mail.  

Friends who get similar mail, particularly those in foreign countries are requested to ignore this mail. My heartfelt thanks to all those who contacted me with anxiety and appreciate their love and affection towards me.

With greetings
Hariharan

Hi Mama, I was surprised to get an email from you too. But I decided to check out tour website because I suspected fraud. Thanks for letting us know that it was a fake email. Hopefully no one gets trapped in this scam. Regards, Neeraja

Dear Shri hariharan, As told by others, I also got the same mail. I think some fraud has hacked our yahoo & google group and sent mails to everyone in those groups. From the construction of the mail, I was almost sure that the mail was misleading. Thanks to God that I didn't respond to it. Thank God that you are also safe. Regards, Vinod N N

Dear Mr.Hariharan, When I recd the 1st mail, initially I was wondering whether a person of ur calibre could be really in such position. Further the sender has apparently has accessed ur mail to me abt 5 days back. There is a statement that u forgot to inform ur trip to Scotland.It is interesting to note that ur Tel No. which is noramlly seen below ur signature was missing in the mail. So getting ur from ur earlier mail, I contacted ur residence. I was told that u are busy on another line. Then to see how the sender responds I sent a mail . To this I recd a 2nd mail the contents of which was similar to what was recd by Mr.Bharathan. Now if I want contact u regarding contributing to ur blog, what is ur ID. Regards Ananthanarayanan
