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.:mad::mad::banghead:

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...

Got the same thing as a pm.

Several people received the PM from member verobi. :cool:

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. :thumb:

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.
