Posted:I had one. Told admin and now I feel silly because they sorted it out 5 days ago. SORRY ADMIN!

At least I didn't go with my first instinct and reply with "They probably deserved it and I hope the bad people kill you too you dirty scamming idiot." Or words to that effect.

Perhaps a few swears here and there.

And there.

Ohh and a big one THERE! *points to empty spot*

ubblol That's ok, as I said, we'd rather all 40 people tell us in case no-one else had rather than everyone thinking "someone would've told them by now" and doing nothing!

Silly scammers obviously don't know anything about HoPpers - how could they ever hope to achieve anything here?! grouphug

Posted:Um.. so far just sending people money to 'claim lottery wins' and the like. He's not on the internet, fortunately, but he gets the ones through the mail..



I think he has sent off a few with bank details on, but seems to have got away with it so far- though he's actually pretty rich, and confused, so I'm not sure how much money they'd need to get out before he noticed..





Though we are waiting for the Russian Brides.. biggrin

NEVER hand out your personal details, like name and account number on the internet to any other than a verified, reliable person.
