'I'm traveling and I've lost my wallet. Can you wire some money?'
The popularity of social networking sites has given a new platform to scammers. A recent scam according to experts involves the fraudster posing as a Facebook 'friend.' They send a message or IM on Facebook claiming to be stuck in a foreign city and they say they need money.
Ironically, many innocuous social networking site users fall to such SOS mails, and wire money.
