This story is near and dear to me. One day I went into a frenzy, because a good friend sent me an email that she was stranded in Ghana and needed me to send her some money. She never mentioned she was going to Ghana. I was taken off guard at first, because I had a couple of other friends who had gone to Ghana to work, about the same time. Common sense came to my rescue again. I finally collected my thoughts and called my friendâ€™s boyfriend. He confirmed my friendâ€™s Gmail account was hijacked and she was safe at home in New Jersey. It only goes to show email administrators must constantly remind our email users not to open email from unknown people.
