    The email feature at the site as well as the private message feature have both been shut off temporarily. They should be working again soon.

    I just got my first "Nigerian Scam" letter in my email this morning. Is this why you shut it off? Are the Nigerians trolling for suckers on this site?

    Here it is....

    "Good day to you,

    Please, do not be apprehensive by this mail. My names are Hansen
    Osifo. I am contacting you in confidence believing that you will
    be most helpfull and not turn down my humble request of you.

    I need you (as a foreigner) to assist me make an official claims
    on a sum of US$28.7million which has been lying in an account
    with this bank since 1996. This money was left behind by a
    foreigner who died in a plane crash in 1996 without any

    Since no one has come forward to claim this money,.some board
    members of the this bank are planning to declare it unclaimable
    and divert it to one discredited trust fund for Arms and
    Amunition. I am against this.

    Now, I need you as a foreigner to stand in as the next of kin of
    the deceased man and make an officla application of claim for
    this money as the beneficiary. I will furnish you with all the
    pertinent details to fascilitate your claims.

    I intend to use part of this money for charity and some for us.
    You will be entiltle to 30% and I and my colleagues to 65%. while
    5% shall be used to reinburese expenses that might be incured
    during the process.

    If this is okay by you, please kindly get back to me via
    ******@xmbox.com furnishing me with your direct private telephone
    and fax numbers for easier and faster reach.

    I await your immediate response.

    Best regards
    Hansen Osifo

    This site has not been trolled by 'bots' or harvest software, our attacks are much more personal.

    Chances are the email you received was harvested for other sources, more like common spam.

    Well I noticed a new lawn site forum has been created this month so I assume they are trying to send emails to everyone here to go and check out their site.

    Not much activity at the other sites. This is the place to be.

    :D :D :D
  9. I suspect it has to do with other sites that have been recruiting members here.

    Its nice to see so many others trying to grasp something I realized so many years ago. Basically, Its waaay to late to get into the ballgame.
