You are indeed lucky, but also I would think conscience-bound to send half of it to Jocelyn, who is (as far as I know) still stranded in Kyiv, Ukraine (that's in the Phillipines). 
Think of those less fortunate.

Yes, these Internet hackers can be dangerous. I on the other hand lucked out 
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 intern= 
et link=2C that is also a sign that your friend's email has been hacked. A= 
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 conta= 
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 nu= 
mber so you can be contacted by another means=2C be sure to enter one. Whe= 
n I was hacked=2C the person changed my email password=2C so the only way I= 
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 ra= 
ndom letters=2C numbers and symbols ----haven't had a problem since.=20
