    Another try.....

    This scammer appears to have hacked into a server in the USA and loaded a spurious page onto a web-site with links to a payment mechanism. The whole thing is a complete fraud.

    Dear friend,

    My name is Marius and I am a student at Technical University of Civil Engineering at Bucharest. It is very difficult for me here because of the big amount of money needed to pay my rent. All I am requesting for you is to take 3 minutes of your time and help me with a small amount of money if it is possible and, in exchange for your help I can design a website for you if you request this.

    To access my website and donate me 1 USD via PayPal click on the following link:

    Thank you!
    Your support will be very much appreciated,
