I received this email. I've seen very similar scams.
Has anybody else gotten the same email?
I'm guessing Dave's contacts are getting this.

I've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and my flight leaves shortly from now but am having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let me leave until i settle the bills,
I'm freaked out at the moment, I need help
