I had a fun encounter this morning with a hacked Facebook account that started chatting with me.  Realizing it was a hack, I decided to play along and see how far it would get.  Keep in mind, I knew the entire time that the person that the account belongs to was not in London.  Here’s the transcription:
Me: hey val!

Me: what’s going on

Hacked Account: we are currently stuck in London uk,went there on a short vacation unfortunately we got mugged at a gun point last night…scary!
