And then I read the second paragraph. The part where she asks me to please send her money to pay her hotel bills, because they won't let her leave England (she took a quick trip) until they were paid. And she was mugged, so she had no money. And the embassy was absolutely no help.
D@!% scammers. They almost had me.

*Edit: Narcissus, much? That's not what happened. It turns out, it really was her email, and I wasn't the only one who got it. Her email must have been hacked...which means I actually have her wrong email address in my contacts! Agh! I really do wonder how many times this happens, though...and how many people fall victim to it.
This was smart.
This was cruel.
And I hate whoever that someone is. I wonder how many people have fallen for this.
And now I'm off to change my blogroll completely.
