The following is a copy (verbatim) of the email I got this morning. One has to wonder what anyone could be thinking sending this kind of email if they weren't planning to attempt extortion. Funny thing about these pfishing emails and such is that I have absolutely nothing anyone could want. If they took over my identity, all they would get is a lot of beads and a WHOLE LOT of debt. The only ransom I could offer anyone is the residual sales on my patterns and the hope that SOMEDAY my books will start to really sell!
Here it is, folks, for your reading enjoyment . . .
