    CLASSIFIEDS SCAMMER ccCorner

    Heads up everybody, there is a scammer working the APUG classifieds. If you receive contact from "cc25Corner" or "cc25corner@gmail" it is a scam. We have banned this user, but he may attempt to re-register under another alias.

    The general scam is to respond by email to WTB postings and offer the item sought requesting payment through western union to an address in the UK. The scammer is actually located in Nigeria.

    He/she displays a general lack of photographic knowledge and bad grammar. If you get contacted by this person or someone else offering similar terms, please report it.

    Get in line chum. I've first call on the $25,000,000 fee for helping secure the fortune of one Basher Mobutu (now there's a name you don't want to meet in a dark alleyway), whose cocoa-rich father was poisoned by business colleagues who lured him to an out of town meeting. I've already sent the bank clearance fee of $3,500, so you can have what's left over once my $25m comes.

    I actually got contacted by someone from the UK wanting to sell me a 8x10 camera by Email saying they saw my posts. Maybe this is the person you speak of Mr Brunner.

    Could that mean my friend Prince N'mbugubullutulubutomba isn't on the level? Oh-oh.
    But he seemed so nice. Terrible about what happened to his father.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Taking note of this and on new version of APUG due out this weekend will make it so members can't PM other members until a certain amount of posts are under their belt.

    Can you mask email addresses too, along with the PM's? I don't mind if real members see it, just new members without a history.
