I guess I shouldn't feel too bad. The email was not sent to "us" but to "undisclosed recipients." Somewhere out there are many more potential victims.
I WAS tempted to reply to the email, just to see which photo he would send me. Would it be something simple that almost anyone could do? Or would it be a challenge?
Oh what the heck, I am going to do it anyway. Will keep y'all posted.
