Fraud Warning

Recommended Posts

I got a private message this evening from someone giving me a variation of the Nigerian scam.  He represented himself as a priest that was fronting for a catholic church that wanted to invest in my business. 

Anyone else that gets this message who has never seen or heard of such a message, ignore it.  DON't click the link he gives you under any circumstance!  It probably will load a key logger on your computer and steal your identity, your passwords and any bank info you have on you computer.

I have notified the moderators about this.

I had one yesterday. I don't know the details because I only read the first line, but it was undoubtedly the same scam.

I haven't had any so perhaps it's related to recent activity, like the scammer went through recent threads and sent to whomever had posted. Hopefully that means most of them went to forum regulars like yourselves who will be wise to it. Any less internet savvy posters who should be warned though?

I wonder if it's connected to whomever is necroing dead threads and treating the forums like they were a dating site. :matte-motes-angry:
