Poor Peter King had his email account hacked and now he's got one of those sick cousins in Spain that needs money for life-saving surgery. It's a very sad—though affordable—story.
Here, from a tipster, is the email you've surely seen at least once in your life.
From: "Peter King" "email@example.com"*
King confirmed the hacking on Twitter, noting he was not in Spain, nor a Nigerian prince, for that matter.
I am not in Spain. I do not have a sick relative. Sorry for the spamming incident. All is well.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) December 15, 2013
Oh, and I'm not a Nigerian prince. Not tonight anyway.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) December 15, 2013
*His email address is not "firstname.lastname@example.org"—we swapped it out—but it is an AOL account.
