Hello All,

I pray that no one has fallen victim to this scam, but my FB account got hijacked.  I say hijacked because they are still using it!  

Someone who is posing as me will chat with you and tell you that Jeff and I were a victim of a robbery, at gunpoint no less, in London and that we need money.  IT IS A SCAM!!!!

We are safe, in the states.  I cannot get back into my FB account, they are still chatting with people trying to take advantage of the greatest family in the world!  

Hackers...the lowest of the low.

Have you tried emailing or otherwise contacting the FB admins?  They might be able to do something about it.  

I did think "you" were rather chatty to me in the chat "you" started up.   It was rather odd...Smile

I did forward to the FB folks.  I think my account has been deactivated because I can't find it on any "friends" list.

I haven't heard from the FB folks...we'll see

He got me .50 cent!  Libby you are worth way more than that, but I figured it wasn't you when he started talkin' like he was from the hood!

I ain't never heard Libby say, "No doubt my neezy!"

But he made me laugh, so I emailed him the .50 cent.

Actually, I know someone who got caught in that scam -- except I don't know if she knows it was a scam yet - Tamia told me about it at work earlier this week (well, about you being robbed in your hotel and stuck in London and sending you money western union).  I'll make sure she knows, but not sure that she can do anything about it now.

It breaks my heart!  Tell her to let me know...I've reported it to the FBI so if she's a victim i want to make sure they know.  They hijacked my personal email too...just scum, absolute scum!

It was strange to me that I had received a friend request from you, although I knew we were already friends.  Should I delete you as a friend for right now?  WOW!  That is scary.

I've two accounts running...I am trying to get it squared away, but I have control of one and the FB team has control of the other.  Once I get it straightened out, I'll deactivate one of them.  

If anyone has been a victim of this, please let me know.  I have the 1800 number for Western Union and I've contacted the FBI.
