It has come to my notice that some members (who have no posts on their
credit)  have been sending lots of Private messages (PM's) to other
members asking them to join some dating/friendship groups and/or promoting
various URL's

I request all members to Report all such unsolicited messages to me so
that appropriate action can be taken.

You can do this by clicking on the "Report to Administrator " button in
the Message Display page, which is shown in the picture below

Similarly you can also block them from sending any more PMs by clicking on the "Block Sender" button




.. as I can't force you to love me, I can't force myself to stop loving you ..

..you Broke my heart ..but I Love you with Every piece of it ..

Just to remind everyone about it.

If you receive a message from a new member straight away offering friendship/dating/money transfer (most of you would have heard about the famous Nigerian scam) than DO report such message as these are usually scammers and try to catch people using these dirty tricks

Here's a guy who scammed the scammers!

http://www.419eater.com/html/letters.htm

Some of his tactics were pretty funny...  Others were horribly cruel...  Basically, these Nigerian scammers would e-mail him and he'd reply saying he's unable to help with a money transfer, BUT he has some sort of opportunity for them to make a ton of money.  He has the whole thing documented with e-mails, pictures, mailing forms, receipts, etc.

In one, he claimed he was the chairman of a foundation that gave art scholarships.  He had the scammer do sculptures, mail them overseas, and then keeps coming up with reasons why he can't pay the guy.  

In another, he tells the guy he's a recruiting officer for a church who will give him $250,000 to start a church in Nigeria, but first the scammer has to go through a bunch of initiations (including getting a tattoo).  After the tattoo, he gives the guy a bunch of reasons why he can't give him the money.  

And my personal favorite...  He has one guy copy, in hand-writing, an entire Harry Potter book.  Another favorite...  He has a guy read and record an entire Harry Potter book...  All of the recordings are posted on the website...  And in fact, I think he makes both of these guys do it twice because he's unhappy with their first attempts...

He's done dozens of them, but those are a few of the ones I remember...
