Posted:o man... scams of this nature are unbelievable! Sure, spam my hotmail if you must, but to go to the extent of registering to a site and PMing the members is astounding.

There must be some suckers in this world for this scam to still be so prevalent.

unbelievable.

Thanks for looking after us Malcolm!

Ya they can get pretty nasty at times.

They will find message boards that have high hits and then target those people.

We had a guy do something similer to another message board that I frequent, not to many people like those people.

Malcolm, what if you let his IP just happen to accidentally slip to one of the hacker-types we have on HOP and they just happened to accidentally mailbomb his ass into the ionosphere?
