Scam!

Yesterday I got a private message from a Victoria or Veronica about me qualifying for a large sum of money, based on the fact that I am the least known family member of a deceased person (of course no name given).

I'm wondering how this person got in as a member? I guess anyone can. I get crap like this on my other emails and merely delete them. I'm hoping this was a one time thing. Her status was a member. I deleted it without replying.

If you've never gotten one of these emails and you get one, beware! They are all scams. To get the money, which you can't without spending a lot of your own, and then you can't get it anyway.

Crap! I thought for sure that was on the up & up. I also sent a Saudi prince $5000 to get out of the country so he could give me $5 million...

Several people received the PM from member verobi.

She(?) has been removed from the forum roster.

Yah, it would be nice. Some people actually get caught up in emails like that. Glad the name was taken down.

I hate getting emails, txts, and calls like that! I get em all the time. For calls there's a national do not call list. You can call a number (look it up on google cuz I forgot) that removes you from telemarketing peoples lists. Im sure there's something like that for emails to.
