Alert: Offwego's email has been hacked!

For those of you on Lori's email list, which likely includes all contributors to the PLF, her email account has been hacked. As you may remember, this happened to Ponheary a couple of years ago. The message sent out is similar, she is stuck in the UK, documents have been stolen and needs a loan of sveral thousand dollars.

I just got the same email, supposedly from Lori, but I knew it wasn't because it asks for money. Hopefully Lori will see this post.

You mean that wasn't Lori? Who did I send the money to?

If you can access Lori's Facebook page, you can see that she is aware that she has been hacked. That was the first place I checked when her e-mail arrived in my inbox.

For anyone interested in sending funds, Lori would be happy to receive your money

Apologies to those of you bothered by the hacking idiots. Crisis has been averted and did not lose the account thankfully.

Elizabeth thanks for the money. Report from a nice weekend in Paris to follow shortly....

Well let's hope you are more careful in Paris than you were in Sheffeild, Lori!

When my E-mail account was hacked last year I inadvertantly distributed pornography to everybody on my list.
