SCAMMED

My friends, someone hacked into on my e-mail account and is e-mailing my contacts telling them that I am in London, was mugged, and need money. Please disregard that e-mail. I am safe at home and a little ticked off. If you get this please let any friends I may have on your e-mail lists know my predicament.
While it's nice to know that my friends are concerned and called me, no one sent money. Hmmm should I be cheered or not?
NOTE: I would never ask for money. I might say, "I am being held ransom until one million of my books have been sold so please spread the word and flood Barnes & Nobles, Amazon, and Borders with orders so I can be released back into the bosom of my family."
That has so much more class than just asking for money don't you think? After all, only a fool would think I would be tacky enough to ask for money and try to extort my intellegent friends.
However, if you ever get an e-mil that I am in Austria and need money it's probably true.
Have a wonderful day and go make your passwords more foolproof.
Happy Daze

I remember reading the scam post on A.I. and immediately thinking it was just that, a scam. I'm glad everything worked out okay for you. I loved your rebuttal, that comment about being held ransom until a million of your books have been sold--cute.

Hey, thanks for your comment on Christine's blog Friday when I was her guest.I would love to meet you as well. Are you coming to the Storymakers conference in April?
