Sorry about the scam-mail you may have received from "me"

    Someone hacked my email account and sent out one of those "I've been mugged in Scotland send me money" scams to everyone who has ever emailed me. Here's a general apology--sorry, guys!
    Besides, if I had been mugged, I would have asked for more than "1,450 pounds sterling" (just kidding) (not really).
    I know everyone is familiar with these scams now, like the Nigerian prince mails, but still--the first time I got one of these, I really thought someone I knew was in trouble.
    So, add my name to the roll of those who have been hacked, and be sure to run a virus scan, just in case?

      Almost everyone in my email address list got one of these.  All my facebook friends got one!  I run a virus scan every day, and it got through anyway.  I let all my friends and family and FB friends know and warn them not to open.

    At least I'm glad to know that everyone is familiar with these nuisances!

    I saw a message on Facebook. I never send anyone any money so even if you had gotten mugged I wouldn't have helped smile
