Thanks, Abe. I was out for the day yesterday and didn't discover the hacking until later. By then, it had spread to FB, through my workshop site, and through most of my contacts. It's been a bear to spread the word that it was bogus, and thank goodness most disregarded it. Unfortunately a couple of people were ready to send money, and for that, I'm grateful that they thought enough to me to try and help, yet so sorry that they may have been compromised.
Thanks for letting everyone here know it was a scam.
