Hoax email from Denise Cann

Dear Friends,

You may have received an email from Denise Cann of Doncaster Meeting with subject “Emergency please; need your help.” saying that she is in Spain and in dire need of funds.

This is a hoax. Please ignore it.

Denise asks me to say she is not in Spain, has not been mugged, and does not need thousands of pounds. She also asks me to say that she has washed her mobile phone (I presume accidentally) and so cannot take your calls on it – but she is here, She’s OK, and as soon as her communications are reinstated she will be able to speak to us again.
