A scam in a PM

Beware Rose Jennifer Scott. I know it is obvious to anyone reading it, that it is a scam, but is anyone else getting these private messages? Lives in England, and you only need to write to her e-mail and she will tell you what she wants! Promising you 30% of her 2 million pounds.

I have blocked sender already.

Go to her personal page and copy the url. Then go to Forum Support through the help center. She needs to be stopped. This is the only way to deal with "these types"!! If you just block her from pming you, she will just move onto someone else until TA is notified.

Must be just those "fancy Hawaiian travelers" like Deb & Joan.

Now if I could only stop Billy Shears from giving out my email to all those drug companies....you know, I see no reason to accept free samples of unnecessary prescription drugs. (wink)
