Beware of African Scammers
I had a message in my BBT inbox from an African scammer who obviously thought I was an easy touch, not so! Just be careful and keep on Rocking the Bottom End
please report the user either to me or johnny, or to firstname.lastname@example.org. we have a zero tolerance rule for any and all abuse here.
Hi Dude, the scammer went by the name CarolineJean, you can check my inbox for the full message. Mark
Guys, hopefully you're all smart enough not to fall for these scams in case someone else tries it..
Anyway as a rule of thumb - nobody and I mean nobody will just give you money or anything just because they found you on the internet. If it looks too good to be true, it isn't true. Don't let these guys or greed fool you.
If need be, we'll buff up the security on the site and try to detect these kind of spam before it gets out of hand. First line of defense should always be common sense!
On behalf of me, thedude and kissyboy, sorry for everyone who got spam in their BBT inbox. It's been taken care of for now.
Thanks Johnny, Dude, Kissyboy. I didn't get the spam, but nice to see that you guys jumped on cleaning it up so fast. And thanks to Marko for posting and alerting us to the problem.
congrats on your 500th post sid! and my 300th
and my 131st! oh my, what a day!
