One day, Granny Smith was surfing the web on her Macintosh when she received a strange message in her email inbox:

"Help, I am a beautiful princess held captive by the terrible leader of the evil Empire! He is planning to force me to marry him at the Royal Gala tonight! My hero, Redd Delicious, could save me if only he had the money, but he is living in your country, and I need help to transfer my funds to him! Dear friend, if you will help me transfer $100,000 out of my country then you will be well-rewarded. Just send me all your bank account information, your social security number, your mother's maiden name, and the middle names of all your children."

Intrigued, Granny Smith clicked "Reply"

Even though she knew that the message was a load of Cox, she felt something in side her. (intended pun)

Was she being stalked?

The message planted seeds of doubt.

"Dear Princess," Granny wrote, unable to locate her Debretts, "I'm afraid I'll need some more information before this plan can come to fruition. Pip pip, Granny Smith."
