#BringBackOurGirls Inspires Email Scam


The #BringBackOurGirls hashtag, aimed at rescuing the more 200 Nigerian schoolgirls kidnapped by an Islamist extremist group, has been making waves on Twtitter. Security blogger Conrad Longmore, who blogs as Dynamoo, came across the offending email, of which the subject line reads #BringBackOurGirls.

Sambo claims her daughters were among those kidnapped by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram, and that the same group murdered her husband.
