    I just got a private message on this quilt board from a Mrs. Joy Gardner, whose Husband died on a plane. She has cancer and not expected to live and wants to leave a lot of money to a church. Smells like a scam to me.

    Yep, this has already been identified as a scammer! But thanks for the heads-up!

    She is sending PM's to everyone I just locked her account. She was here earlier and I locked her but she joined with a different name. I got one this time too.
