I used to post as eryka ...

But my information may have been compromised - spent 3 days closing accounts and changing ids, etc. If you get an email from "me" in my former incarnation, asking you to wire money to bail me out of jail in Nigeria, or let me wire a million dollars into your account if you email me the account number, or any of a ridiculous number of other scams, uh, don't bite, okay?

Meanwhile, we're happily into our 9th year as fulltime liveaboards; spending this spring/summer in the Chesapeake and planning to be headed down the ICW to Florida for the winter.

-- Jaye Eryka (and Dan)

Hey wingN re-welcome to SN dude (heh-heh). I'm just impressed that you busted in Nigeria. Must have been a hell of a night.

Welcome back! Hopefully no ramifications of the change.

@Denise and cb32863 - Thanx! So far at least, looks like I got everything changed/cancelled before they had a chance to act on the info.

@mdbee - Well, if you get wise advice and sage sailing suggestions from someone who *obviously* is awesome, its me. If the suggestions are stupid ... hmmm, must be the scammer.

@Smack - Well, the evening started innocently enough, but then went downhill. Surely, my friend, you could help bail me out? If not the whole $10,000, maybe a contribution? I only need ten people who believe in me, with $1000 apiece, to get me out of here...

<*grins*> to everyone; its nice to be back. And nice to see sailing season is just around the corner!

When I first saw the title, I was concerned it was going the Chastity Bono direction:

"I used to post as Eryka. Now I post as Eric."



Whew.

Probably a bottle of tequila and a video camera. At least, that's how it always happens to me.

To the sailor formerly known as Eryka...thank goodness you chose a pronounceable name and not some freakin' symbol. WingNWing is a good name and I'll always think Eryka whenever I see it. I too sail the Chesapeake and hope someday to meet you.

Sorry for your internet troubles...MGM
