Enthralling entry! Well done. I enjoyed reading your story, and it was sobering to read your conclusion. Ah, the perils of getting personal via computer screen.
Congratulations, Ellen, on your 4th place EC award.

I'm glad Lucy was able to see through the computer scam.
I had a sense of where this was headed, but I kept reading and crossed my fingers hoping she wouldn't fall for the scam. You did such a great job of bringing your MC to life. Congratulations on your EC. Happy Dance!
Congratulations, Ellen, on your 4th place EC! You bring to life an all-to-frequent modern scenario. It astounds me how many people fall for such scams.
Your MC thankfully discovered the hidden meaning behind Marty Monro's pseudonym.
