I suspect that Peter's friends are seeing this message in their in-box this morning. A friend of mine had her email and FaceBook accounts hacked a few months ago, and she had quite a time getting it all straightened out. They used personal information they had learned from reading her FaceBook entries to make the message more believable. Posting to those social networking sites is like telling all the burglars in the country when you're leaving on vacation.

Cy,

Yes, I'm waiting to hear from the real Peter on this. As you say, it's been
done before.

Tell you something else, I'll bet a cookie to a rotton doughnut that Peter
had nothing in the world to do with this post.
I have had similar posts on several of the lists I monitor over the past
year or so.

HelloI'm sorry for this odd request because it might get to you too urgent
but it's because of the situation of things right now,I'm stuck in Cardiff
wales right now,I came down here on vacation ,I was robbed, the situation
seems worse as bags,cash ,credit cards and cell phone were stolen at GUN
POINT, It's such a crazy experience for me, I need help flying back home,
the authorities are not being 100% supportive but the good thing is that I
still have my passport but don't have enough money to get my flight ticket
back home, please I need you to loan me some money, I will reimburse you
right as soon as I'm back home. I promisePeter
