It told of trouble overseas, claiming that the two had been mugged while vacationing briefly in the Phillipines. "We've been to the Embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves in few hours 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," the email pleaded.
