Just saw this article on TechCrunch about the classic "hey, it's me" "send me money" scam. (Also known as the Grandma scam where people cold call old folks and say "hey, grandma. It's me. Send me money. I'm in trouble.")

http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/01/20/latest-facebook-scam-phishers-hit-up-friends-for-cash/

Phishers get in to Facebook accounts and then message friends of that account saying they're in some bad situation and need money.
