Postby the lynx » Mon, 14 Mar 2016 9:56 am

I received this PM from a certain soso11.
Profile here:http://forum.singaporeexpats.com/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=199606

It goes like this:

hi
Sent: Sat Mar 12, 2016 7:58 pm
From: soso11
Receiver: the lynx

my name is Sofia,
i will like to more about you,
Am Jane please contact me,
mada_sofia1@hotmail.com
so that i will send my pictures to you


The baffling part is that this person has ZERO post. I thought one needs to have 5 posts minimum to activate the PM function?!

If things have changed, brace yourself for unsolicited PMs from spammers!

Broke my heart, but my kidney is intact

I just banned her (likely him) again (different nick) before she managed to send any pics to Raj.
It's a scam from Senegal. I banned her I-pee too. Lets see how long this is going to last.

Don't feel bad, She/He's possibly watching this forum :)

I got another PM from Jane/Sofia(and what other name .. ) from a different nick.

You should get lucky as well, hang in there.

If you ask Raj nicely he may send you some of his pictures.

Don't try to turn this thread into IP legal discussion.
