C.net Member's Mail Account Hacked?

Recommended Posts

Stuck somewhere after being robbed I suppose? That one has been doing the rounds for years. It's a virus that highjacks addressbooks. I got several from Irish pipers some years ago and similar messages get flagged on the Mudcat forums with some regularity.


[edited to add]


Just received the message myself.

My wife was victimized by this a couple of years ago. I didn't get the request, but her friends were told that she was stranded in Scotland after a robbery. One sweet lady sent a thousand dollars to a PO box there (without contacting me first). I heard about it from a long list of our friends who were asking if it was true.
