Spam (unwanted) emails and Private Messages
To all members:
If you receive a Private Message or email similar to either of the two below, could you please report it to the one of the Administrators or Moderators with all the details you can. Copy and past the entire message and make sure you include any email address and username of person who sent it.
They sneak through from time to time and are a part of the reason why it isn't possible for new members to send multiple messages and why there's a long wait between sending them.
Cheers - Neil
PS WARNING: If you do happen to get anything similar to either of these please DO NOT respond to it. Admin will deal with the sender.
In life, we only have one chance to do things right to affect the lives
So when I was much younger, I have always wanted to make a difference in
the lives of many, but I never was able to do it in the capacity I
could, because I had a very little financial opportunity to do so.
When my family died in an auto crash, I felt deviasted and suffered a
great emotional and psychological trauma, thaugh this is not why I am
writing you now.
I am writing you because I want to please my concience, I want you to
pick up this charity project for the less priviledged people anywhere in
the world where you find them.
My husband left behind a whopping sum of about $3.5 Million USD in our
account before his death, I have no need for the money anymore as I have
been diagnosed of heart Cancer, leying down in the hospital for the past
11 moths now and have no hope of leaving longer again.
I want you to carry out this legacy in the name of God to assist the
less privillaged, I can not trust any body with this resources, but you
might be wondering why I trusted you.
The answer is I don't trust any body but believe that with God all
things are possible.
With sincere mind, I will offer you a reasonable percentage from the
total sum before the execution of the project once the fund is moved to
With my explanations, I believe that you will have no reason not to
deliver on the project.
Please get back to me if interested in this offer via this mail:

As a suggestion: wouldn't it be safer to make that email link undynamic, and then delete this post? I nearly sent her some money.Regards, FenceFurniture
