    An attempted scam has been tried using the name, and other info, of a 'Round The World' Traveler who came through here last year. A very nice lady I might add. I have contacted her and made her aware of this.

    An email asks for help and money. The perpetrator either hijacked her old account somehow or is using an account name similar to hers. Her listed account is ****[email protected] The perp used an email ****[email protected] Also it is easy to access her friends emails listed in her website's guestbook. Be careful where you post your email address.

    In this case the Nigeria mailing address was a sure tip off, along with poor grammar and typing. Just the same, be careful of being scammed thinking you are coming to someone's aid. People do fall for these scams in large numbers.
