Noah has an alarming post:
Friends and family: I am still in South Africa. I have not been arrested in Spain for possession of a gun and cocaine. If someone calls you and asks you to give bail money so that I don't go to jail, don't believe it. Scammers targeted my grandmother earlier today but she is too smart for any of that garbage.If it sounds fishy, it probably is. I'd tell you if I were going on vacation (especially some ultra-sketchy place like Spain, ugh), and if I was dumb enough to get clapped in irons, I can wait in jail until I (or the State Department) can contact you personally. If you do urgently need to get in touch with me, I usually have my phone, and international SMSs aren't that expensive for one or two.
