[APG Public List] My Predicament!!!! (Need Help).

I did not receive this message, but if I had I would have checked into it
before sending money.  Any information around about how to spot fraudulent
emails lists spelling, punctuation, and sentence structure as tip offs.  The
mixture of I being capitalized in some places and not in others would have
been a red flag for me.

This is apparently becoming a common scam.  This is the third time in less
than a month that I have heard of this type of scam going on.  One was sent
to a very good friend of mine who was smart enough not to fall for it.
Thanks, Jeanette, for posting this.

I've received this email before from someone else and it is a scam.  That's
why I'm sending the reply to both the APG public and private lists.  This is
NOT from Kelly Summers.  Do not try to help!
