Little Sister


When my sister called me not too long ago, she was trying to rent an apartment to a purported English national (let’s call him Chip) through an online service. Being the good chap that he was, Chip wanted to pay for a year’s worth of rent as he was working temporarily for an international organization in Washington, D.C. He intended also to send additional funds so that he could “decorate” the abode. For most folks, the idea of cash in hand sounds like a great deal. That is, of course, unless faced with the ultimate e-mail scam.
