The real story of of Chris and Colin Weir:
But the First Minister did suggest the Prime Minister would be in a “difficult position” if it was judged he did not “try his hardest” in the campaign.
The comments came after it emerged the pro-independence side had received £2.5 million in the past year from EuroMillions lottery winners Chris and Colin Weir.
Both campaigns also claimed a new poll showed the momentum was with them.
In a radio interview, Mr Salmond refused to say that Mr Cameron would have to resign if he became the prime minister who presided over the breakup of the Union.

Someone is sending an email to people on your contacts list claiming to be you. They are trying to get your contacts to click a link or send personal information. You are sure that you did not send the message. This is called e-mail spoofing.
What attackers do is to use some email spam software to anonymously send out emails to all the contacts on exploited email accounts. This is sometimes done with an “anonymous remailer” reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Why e-mail Spoof?
The motivation behind it is to conceal the emails original point of creation while at the same time using a list of your contacts (some of whom trust you) to get them to go to a site. That site can have a variety of intentions. Its not always about malware, the site can also be used as an aggressive blackhat marketing campaign to get people to go to a site or sell products and/or service.
But its also used for phishing attacks, network infiltrations, gathering insider information, and getting malware on systems. Whether its advertising or malicious, e-mail spoofing is counting on the user to be unaware of the true nature of the email.
See if you account is just spoofed or hacked AND spoofed. There is a difference. If they are spoofing and somehow got all your contacts.. Honestly, SMTP (email) is not very secure by itself. So there is not much you can do if your email gets spoofed except notify your contacts. Imagine trying to stop someone from sending snail mail to your contacts with a return address that says its from you.. how do you stop that? How would you even find out where they sent it from?
If you account is being actively infiltrated and THEN spoofed there is something you can do.
The first thing you should do is change your password.
A spammer may have altered your account information, allowing them to access your account again even after you change your password.Visit your Account Information page. — yahoo
Click Choose how Yahoo contacts you under “Contact Information.”Change the email address on file if you don’t recognize it.- For help, see adding an alternate email address to your account.Ref: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/
There is a fraudulent document / phishing attack using UNFCC as a way to get people’s personal information.
The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCC) is a treaty that is developed at United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (aka Earth Summit). There goal is to reduce the potential adverse affects that humans have on the Earth’s climate.

Some money in various currencies were discovered in a room at a farm
house near one of Osama Bin Laden’s old house in Kabul-Afghanistan during
a rescue operation, I happened to be one of the soldiers that lead that
operation that day, so it was agreed by Col. William E. Cole the head of
our battalion that some part of this money will be shared among both of
us before informing anybody about it since both of us saw the money
first. This was quite an illegal thing to do, but I tell you what? No
compensation can make up for the risk we have taken with our lives in
this hell hole, my brother in-law was killed by a road side bomb just few
Now i found a very reliable way of sending a trunk metallic box
containing the amount of United States Dollars worth ($20,000,000) as
you must agree with me it has been hell on earth trying to keep this
money safe from people’s eyes for all these while and with this
opportunity all I need is just someone capable I can trust 100% I can
send the box to. So if you can assure me of your honesty I will go ahead
and send the box to you for safe keeping till I am back home and I will
gladly give you 30% of the money. If this okay with you please get back
to me with the following so i can get the box across to you.
