Have you ever received a suspicious email promising a share of a large fortune for your help in releasing the fortune from some far away place, originally that was Nigeria? The scheme and the place may wary but the idea is to get you paying sometimes a lot of money for getting the supposed fortune released. Some people have sent money to the scam artist with a result that they get another story of some problems arising and more money needed. There are other types of scams often involving a pretty face and a heart breaking story with the same objective to get as much as possible money extracted from the victim. Be careful with these, since we have them sometimes appearing as new members here. If you receive anything like these messages, please contact the Site Management team so that it can be nipped in the bud.
