Just got a private message on this site, from a refugee in Ghana offering me a share of $800,000 US dollars her father has saved up.blah blah blah........
Watch out every body,there could be a flood of these messages coming!!
It may be something that admin should look into.

We had the reports and banished the member. Sorry. Sadly these people are finding it harder to scam through normal channels so they're targeting site like ours now. We have a pretty good spam system in place, which is why you get very little hassle, but occasionally one slips through.

I agree Pete, the site is very secure.There is no perfect system and the scammers are always on the look out for new ways to hack systems.

Yep, I got one too - but been there done that and not sure want to go through being hacked again. Thanks and appreciate that a site this site does hold the potential for people to slip through the nets every now and then.
