Howard noted that the entire staff got one of those “stranded in Europe” phishing emails from Stacy Lange over the break. Apparently her email account had been hacked, and Robin, in some kind of cold-medicated haze, was the only one to fall for it: “So what does Robin do, sick as a dog? She’s such a sweetie…she decides to wire Stacy Lange 1,400 euros.” Robin said she thought it would be an easy task since she already had a Western Union account, “because I once had to wire someone else money.” Gary laughed: “A Nigerian prince!” When her head cleared, she quickly canceled the transfer.
