Donna, I wasn't doubting so much as looking at what was sent, and not
seeing the whole picture, as you say. This hasn't been a good day for me,
and I guess some of it's spilling over into my posts. :(

You were right being scared. I would have been too. Most people are as
you see them...face value on the net. That's surprising, really for how

for everyone to be cautious. If he continues to harrass you, I'd think
about contacting the authorities.
