The mod squad was aware of at least one post, and the sender has been banned (or soon will be). Obviously, this is a fraudulent message and should be nuked. This is an odd case where someone registered to be a member, then did not post in any threads, but apparently used the personal message system. Both administration and moderators are looking into the security aspect of this. The IP address in fact traces to the African Network Information Center NET.

Do not respond to this message, or provide any personal information.

For a small investment on your part you will share in her bounty.

This one must be the all time classic.

Wouldn't it be cool to start a thing where you bombard a'holes like this with bogus info and hook them into thinking that they are on to a sucker?

Think of the fun you could have! I did this once with a "pork belly and soy" broker who was calling me for weeks when I was in college.

I wonder if the Nigerian phone guy got any bites when he posted here.
If they send out many solicitations then they have a chance to get more fish to bite

You mean that was a SCAM?? I'm not going to be rich??

This is going to be awkward asking for my job back.

I've had these before. They usually request your bank account number, allegedly so they can transfer funds to it. I'm sure what they really intend is to extract funds from it. Don't give out any personal information, as has already been stated.

It was fun to watch it go down in real time.
