    My guess would be that this is plain old spam, and you were not the only one who received a message. 

    I recall getting an email one time from a popular hubber (she and I had previously emailed many times) asking for money.  I immediately knew it was not her and contacted her at another email address.  Her email account had been hacked.

    Call it spam and ignore it.  This will likely not be the last time you receive such a message...

    There's no need to involve administrations. If you politely decline, I'm sure they won't ask again. I had someone ask for donations on one of my Hubs (not a Hubber)...I didn't reply but I didn't delete the comment either. Maybe someone else could donate.

    Some people are genuinely broke. (obviously, some are spam.)

      I imagine it will happen again, just to other people.  I'd report it.
