Another phish from the hotel world. If you've read this blog before, you'll remember Pastor Lewis. He seems to have a colleague - Pastor Ray. Only 3 couples this time - who, of course, want to stay for 10 nights. My cyberfriend Annie has replied. I wonder what Pastor Ray wants her to pay for? Pastor Lewis wanted her to pay for airfares. I'll let you know!
If you run a hotel/B&B these are just phishing emails. The scammer is trying to get you send him money, not book anyone into your hotel. Just delete it.
