  1. Hi Nancy

    I’d forgotten about this until I read the email you got, but I received a few of these when I first started workin online. Fortunately I thought to do as you did and tell Paypal about it…. They were most awesome and thanked me, explained it was a fraud and to please forward to them any I received so they could investigate. That is great info and I’m glad you thought to share that with everyone. I didn’t think to do that!!

    Thank you! I miss writing back and forth but I realize that is what happens when we get busy. I think about you often and hope things continue to get better for you.

    Take care and I always have VERY BIG HUGS FOR YOU!!

    Your friend,
