Scam Alert!

I woke up this morning to five calls and some texts from people who got a scam email from me. I sincerely apologize if you received this too. Someone has hacked into my email account and also changed my password to lock me out. They also were able to delete my facebook account. I can't contact my mailing list to let them all know it is a scam. I am NOT in Barcelona and not asking for your money!

> Hi, I really don't mean to inconvenience you right now but I made a quick trip to Spain and I lost a bag which contains my passport and credit cards.
> I know this may sound odd, but it all happened very fast. I've been to the embassy here and they're willing to help me fly without my passport but I just have to pay for my air ticket and settle some bills at the hotel. Right now I'm out of cash plus i can't access my bank without my credit card over here.
> I have contacted them but they need more verification. I'm just gonna have to plead with you to lend me some funds right now?
> I'll pay back as soon as I get home. I need to get on the next available flight home.
>
> I am in a hotel in Barcelona now. Please reply as soon as you get this message so I can forward the details as to where to send the funds.

> Thanks a lot
