Thankfully I had just heard on the news the day before that this was a new facebook scam where people were hacking into people's accounts and contacting their friends to ask for money, saying that they were in dangerous or dire situations. I alerted Jordan and we contacted his friend and his friend's parents and sister to get ahold of him immediately to take care of his account. Jordan said, "Mom, you need to put this on your blog and let people know about it so it won't happen to them and they won't get deceived by this." He also wanted me to post the transcript of his chat with this person to show you just the type of things these people say. Please let people know about this deception that is happening.
As you can see when Jordan rebuked this person they quickly logged off:

right now you are not only breaking federal law but you are in serious danger of going straight to hell. You do realize that don't you?
Your sins will find you out. God says everything will be shouted from the rooftops one day. What you have done is going to be seen by all on the day of judgment. You will not get away with this crime, I promise you. Shame on you, shame! Mike is a committed Christian and I am telling you the God he serves will not allow you to get away with this and GOD ALMIGHTY WILL TAKE VENGEANCE UPON YOU!!! Get ready because the weapon of the Lord is on it's way to bring you down, man. Better brace for it. It's headed your way.
