Former Alliance resident subject of e-mail scam

A former Alliance resident and receptionist for Double Q country radio was the subject of a fake e-mail supposedly from a family member or friend who is traveling somewhere and needs to borrow money because they've run into trouble. This e-mail had Misty Graham in the Phillipines and needing $1,800 to make it back to the U.S.

Graham says the e-mail is phony, and she is fine living in Kearney. Graham says she first learned that someone had hacked into her contacts list when some of those who got the scam attempted to got hold of her.

Graham was relieved that none of her friends or business contacts fell for the scam. Graham says having different passwords using letters and Numerals on each account will keep people from being a victim like she was.
