this scam went around about 5 or 6 weeks ago as well. Looks like more email addresses have been hacked

It's not just tuk tuk drivers in Phnom Penh whose email addresses have been hacked ... I received the same email via the hacked email address of a friend here in Canada.

Did he have a hotmail account, we know of at least 4 Australians and one Thai who have had this happen.

Hopefully he has realized his account has been hacked and opened up a new account as this could be so bad for his business.
