    Peace

    I don't usually post private e mails, but this morning around 6am eastern time i received an E-mail from a member, most of us love to ignore and i've had on ignore since the button was returned months ago asking for in 1,850 in euro because he and his family are stuck in Madrid, spain and they were robbed of everything except their passport's. He goes on to say that his plane leaves in just a few hours to return home and he desperately needs my help. I responded to him about 20 minutes ago @ 2:45pm eastern time "no hablas englais" and he responded AGAIN with all of the info. i need to send the money by western union. Iroically, he claims he's lost everything and is stuck in madrid, but was just here on the site posting more of his senseless nonsense in a thread. :cool:

    I'm only revealing the details of the e-mail so that no one here takes his e mail seriously, as i'm sure i'm not the only one he e mails. WHen you see his name logged in on the site, just click on his name and you will more likely than not see him viewing someone's profile because that's all he does. He wants your email information, as well as your facebook information so he can harrass you with messages, as well as the people you've friended. Apparantly, this seems to be why he does such things.

    As he is not that bright, it won't be long after he see's this that he will reveal himself and when that happens, i humbly request that he be banned for it appears his sole purpose here all this time was/is too try to snuggle up close to people via nonsensical post's that have nothing to do with the thread and scam people out of money.

    This has been an info. service announcement.

    P.S. if you have also received this e mail between yesterday and today, please feel free to comment on it here......You don't have to say the individual's name

    More, one can tell from the writing style whether it is chuck or not. It's not chuck.

    He also informed us that his email address was compromised.

    It did seem suspect, but with the writing style, the anonymous send-out, and the reports received here, as well as his lack of requests for money here, the picture is together: he was hacked.

    If his email address sends any links, don't click them.
