I've been wondering what to do with the million  dollars I won at a casino 
on a $20 bet recently, Rick. So if you would  send me your bank account 
number I would happily put a few more  thou in there for you--so as to help you 
pay the taxes on your  windfall, my friend,  
Bob in Nevada.

Yes,  these Internet hackers can be dangerous. I on the other hand lucked  
when I answered a Nigerian prince's email request. He said he was a  Mark
Twain fan. His country is in turmoil and he needed a place to store  several
million dollars for a short time. He seemed like a nice guy and he  promised
me a HUGE gift for this small favor. I gave him my bank account  numbers and
now, this morning, I am going to the bank to pick up my check  for
$3,000,000.00! Isn't that amazing? So the lesson here is sometimes you  can
trust these Internet things and sometimes you can't. I guess I'm just  the
lucky one.

If you ever receive  a message from  a friend that has nothing but an 
et link=2C that is also a sign  that your friend's email has been hacked.  
friend will usually tell  you what a url leads to or mention why s/he sent =
The hackers are  active. Last week=2C I received 4 of those and when I 
cted my  friends=2C every one of them had been hacked.

When your email server  asks you for a second email address or cell phone 
mber so you can be  contacted by another means=2C be sure to enter one.  
n I was  hacked=2C the person changed my email password=2C so the only way 
had to  contact my server was through a separate email account.

I changed my  password to 16 digits (the longest my server will allow) of 
ndom  letters=2C numbers and symbols ----haven't had a problem  since.=20
