Beer People

August 5, 2010

Around the beer blogs, the sentiment is that generally beer people are good people.  Case in point, this morning I found my e-mail account had been disabled due to some irregular activity.  It ends up that some crazy Nigerian hacked my account, changed some settings and sent out a distress message:

Good Morning,

I’m writing this message with tears,Our trip to England was messed up.  My family and I came down here to London, England for a short vacation unfortunately we were robbed at the park of the hotel where we stayed, such a crazy and horrible experience!!  All our cash and cell were stolen off us, but luckily for us we still have our passports with us…

We’ve been to the embassy and the Police here but they’re not helping issues at all and our flight leaves soon, but we’re having problems settling the hotel bills and the hotel manager won’t let us leave until we clear the bills.

Am freaked out at the moment.

So, needless to say, I am not in London.  I haven’t left Washington.  Some of you know, that a trip with my family (wife and four kids) would cost me an arm and a leg.  I have a good job, but I ain’t made of money.  Moreover, I wouldn’t make it a short vacation.

I received many calls and messages from friends just making sure.  Included in this caring group were some of the beer bloggers with which I have had personal contact.  Thanks, and you know who you are.  🙂

A toast:  that beer people always remain good people.
