Its Rafi, been a long time since I've been on your site. I just received an email supposedly from you saying that your in Scotland and in need of money. Its your email address so I'm thinking somebody hacked into the site and got all your subscribers email address. If you need a copy of the email, PM me with an email address to forward it to you.
I'm posting it here in hopes that all others will see it and not make the mistake to respond to the email (in this day you never know who will respond).
Hope everything is OK.

Rafi, thanks for your concern. The site was not hacked. It was only my personal email address.

I'm on vacation in UK, and got the same mail. So, naturally concerned, I replied, but got me a dodgy reply back, so now am gonna lead the sucker on for a while.
Kinda guessed Jerry would have back out plan if this was the case.
People like this need shooting with s#it, and stabbing with a blunt carrot.

*I'm writing this with tears in my eyes,my family and I had a trip to Greenock,Scotland for a short vacation unfortunately we were mugged at the park of the hotel where we stayed,all cash,credit card and cell were all stolen from us but luckily for us we still have our passports with us.
We've been to the embassy and the Police here but they're not helping issues at all and our flight leaves in few hrs from now but we're having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won't let us leave until we settle the bills the amount needed now is just $3,000USD.I am so confused right now and thank God i wasn't injured because I complied immediately,Please keep checking your email from time to time as it's the only way to reach you.
Waiting to read from you so we can let you know how to get the money wired to us.
####THIS IS THE EMAIL FLOATING AROUND######

Worst part about all this is that it had to be someone who knew Jerry or frequents this site because they knew he was on vacation making the scenario somewhat believable. Glad you and your family are good and it was a very bad attempt at making some quick money.
