    I just got a strange email to my regular address; from Harriet Carpanini. Saying they were on vacation and were mugged and need money to pay their hotel bills and such. Has anyone else gotten this? I don't know how she would have gotten my address.

    SCAM! It is soo easy to get anyone's address or put a name with an address. Please question all snail mail or email requests.
