SCAM!!! [was: Re: [progressives] Randy and Robin.....Horrible Trip.]

This is a scam!  Obviously someone hacked Randy's email and is using it 
to try to trick money out of people.  This same scam happened to a 
friend of mine a couple months ago.  If you know Randy Pelton, phone him 
or his friends or family and find out what the real situation is.
