    Email from Drake @ Independent Suspension Operations is stuck in the philippines.

    So, I get this email today. Is this a joke or is it real?


    I'm writing to let you know that my family and i are stuck in Manila, Philippine has been a mess We got mugged last night at gun point and lost all cash,credit card and cell phone. It has been a scary experience,Thank God we still got our life and passport saved here with us.

    Our return fight leaves in some hours from now but we are having problems settling our hotel bills, i need you to loan me some money, I'll refund it back to you as soon as we arrive back home Kindly let me know if you can be of help so that i can tell you how to wire the money to me via western union.

    Awaiting your positive response,

    Thanks
    Drake

    The name of his company sounds familiar, but I've never heard of Drake before today. I did some googling and it sounds like this guy does some great work. Although, it looks like his customer service can be a little hit and miss.

    Got it, too. Looks like his e-mail database was compromised.
