Hacking Al

If you get a desperate e-mail from state Rep. Al Park saying he's stuck in London and needs some quick cash -- Don't believe it and don't send him any money! 

The Attorney General's office just sent out an e-mail sayingt hat Park "is the focal point of a scam after having his personal email account hacked and his contact list used to send a mass email message that asks for money in his name. The email that went out early this morning was even sent to Attorney General Gary King and members of his staff."

The news release goes on to explain that Park is not in London "Park says he is sorry for any inconvenience or needless worry this may have caused friends and colleagues. He has reported the incident to authorities, including the Attorney General's Office."
