It’s a scam. Somehow, someone hacked into Brooke’s personal email account today, and sent a message to everyone in her address book, pleading for help from London. Thankfully, we can assure you that Brooke is safe and sound, and working hard in Haiti for PID at this very moment — and definitely not in London!
And please, if you ever receive and email from someone at PID that seems at all questionable, call our office, and do not reply to the email. Hoaxes like this are unfortunately common, and this may not be the last time we’re affected.
