We have received the following email. We have visited Belle Starr last spring on her ranch in Southern Arizona and know that Belle would never send emails like this or ask for money. Belle would not be able to travel to Cairo as she uses a scooter to get around. THIS EMAIL IS A SCAM, done by somebody who has hi-jacked Belle's address book on her computer.
We had knowledge to this type of emails and have notified Belle Starr about what's going on.
