A friend in Germany emailed that she needed $3000, was in a Madrid hotel, robbed, etc., etc. I emailed back that it would be faster for her to contact her (adult) children (all doing well financially) for funds. Got back an email that she was now in Nigeria, to send funds there and I emailed back that with the money to get to Nigeria, you could have gone home. Turned out her email list had been hacked and others were contacted - to my knowledge no one was taken in.
