If anyone happens to know Daniel Harrison of Christchurch - it appears his gmail account has been hacked and hijacked by scammers.

I sold him something on trademe years ago, which is why I appear in his address book. I do not have a phone number for him.

This mail was sent by the scammers using his address:

      How are you doing?I'm sorry for not informing
you about my trip to Madrid Spain.I had to visit a
resort in Madrid Spain,Unfortunately i got mugged at
GUN POINT by some muggers.All my cash,credit card and
phone were stolen,It was a scary experience.I've been
to the Embassy here,but they are not being 100%
supportive.My Return flight leaves in 24 hours and i
 am having troubles sorting out the hotel bills ,
the hotel manager will not allow me 
leave until the bills are settled.

    I was wondering if you can loan me some money to get
the hotel bills sorted out and also get a cab to the airport,
i will definitely refund the loan as soon as i get back.

Tell him you'll send him a 50% share in TEN MILLION DOLLARS USA. All he needs to do is help you out with some wire transfer fees.
