Or a hacked or phished mailbox and contacts list.  This seems to be becoming
commoner, even with anti-virus and other security software in place.

The most effective seems to be a "personal message" saying to the effect,
"Help!  I've had my wallet lifted in Edinburgh [or wherever].  Please send
some money urgently and I'll pay you back when I get home."

Tailored spam, who needs it?  If I believed some of it, I'd be seriously
worried about the security of my online accounts.  And how many I seem to
have that I don't remember ever setting up!
