Capitalising on people's sense of charity and generosity, especially when it involves matters of health, is another avenue for scammers to bait their targets into handing over cash in the form of bitcoins. No details, other than the use of a throw-away email address, so there's absolutely no way to verify the claims made.

Given that there are a number of services available for eBegging, it goes without saying that receiving an email requesting financial aid to cover medical or surgery costs, should be deleted without response as a scam (notwithstanding the same email will be received from multiple email addresses being an obvious clue as to the nature of any messages).

Hello, I apologize for bothering you,
but I'm not sure how to get out of the difficult situation I'm in.

Maybe you could help me. I need an urgent liver transplantation,
and the surgery costs a lot of money for me.
To be precise, I need [amount needed].

I would greatly appreciate any amount you can contribute.
If you're unable to help, I apologize once again.

You can buy bitcoin here [bitcoin vendor]
or choose another payment service (google search phrase "buy bitcoin")

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this,
and please take care of yourself and your loved ones, especially your family...
