I was the victim of this scam a few weeks ago. Someone got into my email  
account and sent this email to my entire list. It took me 24 hrs before I  
could get into my account and change my password. Some friends called to  
make sure I was ok. Others I had just seen a few hours ago and knew it was  
a hoax. I am convinced it came from Facebook which is why I removed myself  
from it. Just Beware1
