Terry, that's hardly worthy of an answer (suggesting Accusations and Lies).
But sure, on the basis that 'friend of a friend' is how urban legends
it was your correspondent's friend. Correspondent is equivalent to the
first generation friend in that urban legend phrase. Her friend thus
becomes 'friend of a friend'. End of story, all I was saying.
But as genealogists we're all wary of the equivalent "friend of a friend
told me" when doing oral interviews (substitute kinship terms). It's like
believing family gossip without hearing it from the actual person.
Still batting zero here on people being actually duped.

So you are saying that my correspondent lied to me when she said one of
the other people to whom the email was sent did send money? On what basis do
you make that accusation?
