    [FONT=&quot]This scam is happening more and more and its working. You get emails from friends from your own email address book, purporting to be in trouble and needing cash. There is always a short window, such as bail, or a flight to catch. [/FONT][FONT=&quot]My brother got this from a friend, except he was at the friends house at the time so he knew Andy was not in Spain. let's be careful out there and employ a good malware cleaner.

    I recently had one from my daughter asking me to be friends on Facebook, saying Jennywalker wants to be your friend from her email address as well, she never ever calls herself Jenny so immediatey warning bells rang in my head, I warned her that her email address had been scammed and I wonder how many this invitation had worked on others.
