There's important news on the Gallaudet Daily Digest. It's important that everyone reads this and be very aware:
Several of my deaf friends have fallen prey to this scam and are in the process of seeking legal advice in hopes of recovering their finances.
There's also been an e-mail scam that has been going around from various places of asking people to submit info or wire money in order to get money. At most times, I've referred them to Homeland Security fraud division.
Also, be aware that someone has been doing an "AIM Crush alert." an AIM CRUSH alert means that "someone" likes you and sets up a notice on your IM and sends you a link to go to that site to find out who that person (the secret lover). But I advise people to put the person's IM on spam and block it.
Whatever happens, be smart and be safe on the 'net!
