I received this email from her and have certain questions as to its legitimacy:
I need your help..My family and i made a trip to out of the country due to an emergency unfortunately for us, we were robbed and i was hurt on our way back to the hotel. I need your help financially to sort out some bills here and get back home. I will refund you the money once i get back home.
Let me know if i can count on you.
Thanks so much!
I was just about to send lots of money but then noticed that she wrote “Let me know if i can count on you.” Marilu always capitalizes her “I’s.” So suddenly the whole ruse became crystal clear. Marilu needs money and came up with this ridiculous scheme. Sometimes it takes a while, but nothing ever gets by me.
Huh? What? Her email was hacked? This is a common scam? Hmmmm? Come to think of it, I did give $500 to Ted Danson for the same thing and he never thanked me.
