Hackers Use Email Address Books

Here's the latest from our "friends" in Nigeria. The scammer breaks into a victim's email account, impersonates the victim and sends a plea for help to everyone in their address book. The scammer asks for money and access to email passwords to "verify information." the subject line generally screams "emergency!!!" and details the victim having been mugged in Nigeria.
