SCAM!!!

I got an email from CO+K this morning saying that someone had sent me a message. Oooooooh I thought, how exciting (what? I don't get out much:/) when I read it, it was a scam, some woman claiming her hub had been killed and he'd left a locker with millions of pounds in and only she knew where it was. If I helped her with costs I could have a percentage.
That really annoyed me, this is a site where we all come together to share our crafty knowledge and stuff like that, all friendly like.
Hope nobody's been ripped off like this.

My mom used to have a couple of "crack heads" live across the street from her, they used to come up with the craziest stories of why they needed some money urgently.. one time the woman came when I was there and offered me a bag of clothes.. hahah they borrowed a lighter once because their "pilot light was out on their hot water tank" he said he would bring it back in 5 minutes.. it never came back Happy so I thought it would be funny to save up all the empty lighters I could find and scatter them in front of his house and watch him desperatly pick them up trying to find one that works hahahaha. I hate drug addicts, I wish they would just keep to themselves.
