Peter King Hacked, Claims He Is Not A Nigerian Prince

Under no circumstances should you help Peter King. Well, at least not today.

The Sports Illustrated writer had his email account hacked this weekend and some of his fans have received scam emails.

According to the email, King is stuck in Spain trying to take care of his ill cousin. So why is this any of your business? Well, apparently King can’t leave the country and he needs money to pay for a life saving operation.

The email reads:

“Sorry to bother you with this. Am presently in Spain with my ill Cousin. She’s suffering from a Kidney disease and must undergo surgery to save her life. I am deeply sorry for not writing or calling you before leaving, the news of her illness arrived to me as an emergency and that she needs family support to keep her going, I hope you understand my plight and pardon me.

“The surgery is very cheap here in Spain, I am wondering if you can be of any assistance to me, I need the balance of $2,500 to make the necessary arrangement, I traveled with little money due to the short time I had to prepare for this trip and never expected things to be the way it is right now. I’ll surely pay you back once I get back home, The surgery needs to be done as soon as possible because she is going through a lot of pain at the moment and the doctor have advised that she has to be operated on time to avoid complications. I will appreciate whatever amount you can come up with if not all. Please get back to me.”

King took to Twitter tonight to tell his fans that he is not in Spain, that he does not have a cousin, and, at the moment, he is not employed as a Nigerian Prince.
