I sent the person to be hacked a email warning them about this. a Copy is listed below.

whoever that is. He | came to a site I frequent undergroundnews.com and private messaged a bunch of us asking us to | help him/her break into your account. I of course will do nothing of the sort as this is
| a.) illeagle and I do not know the idiot
| b.) Juvinille
