For probably the last 3 years or so this is a scam; the result of a persons email account getting hacked.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

It's definitely a scam -- it happened (the scam, not the robbery) to my sister once. Worst part was my sister works for the Scottish Government, so she spends a lot of time in the UK and I actually had reason to believe it was real.

Its a scam...I had recieved a similiar email saying my dad was stranded in the philipines and needed money. Funny thing is that I recieved the email while I was with my dad and I pulled a $20 bill, gave it to him and he asked what that was for. I told him well apparently you are stranded in the philipines and need money to get home. I showed him the email on my phone and we just laughed.

Here is what I got:

I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get to you too urgent but itís because of the situation of things right now.

Iím on vacation in London, I know I didn't mention anything about it to you but I am trouble, I was mugged last night in an alley by a gang of thugs on my way back from shopping, one of them had a knife poking my neck for almost two minutes and everything i had on us including my phone, credit cards were all stolen, quite honestly it was beyond a dreadful experience for me but looking on the bright side I wasn't seriously hurt or injured and I am still alive so that is what is important. I've reported to the cops here and canceled all my cards, it appeared I had acted quickly enough or they almost would have succeeded in cleaning out my bank account. I'm really having some difficulties clearing our hotel bills and also need to pick up a voucher ticket at the counter for me to catch a flight back home as soon as possible. All I need right now is $1,950 or anything you can spare pending when I get things straightened out will be appreciated and I promise to refund you as soon as i arrive home safely, western union is the best way to get money across to me. Please get back to me as soon as possible to let you know how you can get the money across to me.

Chuck Sheffield
New Holland Summer Fest Committee


I was going to send the money, but I was $.37 short.

Sorry Chuck.

Maybe next year.

And, stay away from those places where you might get mugged!!!
