No politics, no video-hyping, no tear-jerking accounts of my dying pals.
No, just an odd bit I thought might be tangentially related to this joint.
I've gotten a couple of "stuck overseas" email scams in the inbox today. You know the type: "All our stuff's been stolen. The embassy can't help. Our flight's leaving in a couple of hours. Help."
Nothing new. Except for one tiny detail.
The email name of the sender of one of these (different senders each one) references a long-respected and now-departed member of this community.
Just wondering if anyone else has gotten an SOS from a non-friend stuck in Manila this morning, and whether it's possible a scammer is trawling profiles here.
