Send Message: To this poster

Hello, How're you doing this morning, I know this might be a surprise to you
but am sorry to reach out to you in this manner and I apologize for not
informing you about my urgent trip to Spain for a Seminar and a Project.

Everything was fine until I got robbed on my way back to the hotel and I
lost my wallet, mobile phone and some valuables during this incident. I had
to block my account and bank cards immediately the incident happened. I am
facing a hard time here because I have no money on me to clear Hotel bills
and some expenses. I'm sending you this message to inform you that am
stranded at the moment and need your help with a loan of 2420 Euros to clear
up the bills and make arrangements to get back home.

Am sorry for the inconvenience this message might cause you but please
understand that am in a very bad situation right now and really need you to
help me out, I will be able to refund the money upon my arrival but I will
need your account details to do that. Please let me know if you can help me
with the amount as soon as you get this message.

Thanks in advance

Jean Womack

Jean's email account has obviously been hacked. I had this happen last year (robbed in London)... so, Jean, if you are reading this, take care of it.

To the others, don't respond. It's a scam.

Sign-ups for Exchange 51 will open up Saturday, October 1, 2011.

The theme is open--you choose the subject for your image.
The paper size will be "oban" (10 x 15 inches/ 38 cm x 25.5)

And just a reminder to those who have signed up to participate in Ex. 50--Saturday is the last day to drop out of the exchange without penalties. As our fearless coordinator Gayle has said, "101 or Bust!"
