the basic lesson of the internet

Trust no one.

(My mom got hit on for "a loan" by someone who had hacked a friend's email and impersonated her, pretending to be on vacation and desperately in need of a short-term loan. I'm not sure whether mom actually sent money to the fraudster. Oh, do I despise people who fleece trusting people who want to help their friends.)
