Save my sister's wedding

Hi there, 

My name is Nicole and I am asking for help to save my sister's wedding. Hackers stole $10 000 from my sister and now she can't pay for her wedding. 

My sister and her fiance booked their wedding at an Adelaide winery in July. Over the last few months my sister has been chatting with them via email about the plans for the day and the deposit that needed to be paid. After the deposit of $10 000 was paid the winery started being quite rude and aggressively seeking more money from her via email so her fiance rang the winery to speak to owner. They discovered that it wasn't the winery they were speaking to! Turns out my sister's email was hacked and it was the hacker using the identity of a worker at the winery that was communicating with her. She had paid the $10 000 to the person that hacked her email account. They have spoken to police, ACORN and all their insurance companies but all have been unsuccessful in tracing the money so far. They are now looking at cancelling their wedding or not having a reception at all. Their wedding is supposed to be in April.

My sister and her fiance are both small business owners who work hard and for long hours. They are such nice, caring and giving people who would do anything for anyone. They deserve to have the wedding they have planned for, worked hard for and saved for.

Please help me to save their wedding! We would all be so grateful for any help. Any donations will go directly to my sister to help her pay for her wedding. 

Thank you
