Not trapped in England, nor am I a Nigerian prince.
I'm sure it doesn't come as much of a surprise, but my gmail account got hacked this morning. The request for money that everyone on my contact list received yields thousands of google hits word for word, so at least this looks like a common scam, as opposed to one tailored to me specifically (looking at you, lordm). I've been answering phone calls from people I haven't talked to in years all morning. So yes, thank you for your concern, but save your money for a worthy cause. Don't send it to lordm either.
