Yahoo Messenger Scam!!

I'm posting a bizarre encounter with a "phantom" on Yahoo Messenger, that took place in late January. I chatted with a gal named Helena who said she was from Avenel, NJ. She was polite and interesting to chat with until the conversations turned into a money marathon! It was eventually revealed to be a Nigerian scam, with a cleverly devised story of a caring woman and her sickly mother in need of money!! For the whole write-up, plus a "ghost" pic of Helena, be sure to visit my website.
