Potential scam...?

Hi,

 

Normally I'd deal with things like this myself by either ignoring it, blocking it or if I'm in a mood respond to it and mess around with the person, but in this case given the context and literal secrecy implied, I figured I'd share this message publicly under the assumption that it is a scam of some sort and to raise awareness towards discarding such messages.

yes well that's all well and fine for those of us that can follow your directions but is there not someone here that can take away their privileges


@RossN 

Yes, PM staff have the ability to ban users either temporarily or permanently for violating the community Terms of Service.  If you've reported them already, either by using the "Report" link or by messaging Alan_K directly, then there's not much else to do, other than what I already suggested. I would definitely not advise replying to the message.

@Barryere  Received identical message this morning.  Reported.

Are we sure this is a scam ? Maybe Susan really does like the looks of your profile and would like to get to know you more better (sic). Maybe that private discussion would lead to your righful inheritance of some millions in lost gold coins, recently rediscovered. Then again.... !! Smiley Frustrated

@hairbag1, it's against the TOS.

You're probably the person whom sent the message and if not I guess you are trying to joke about it.

My appologies...was just trying to be funny.

Suppose I was offered millions of dollars, in a scam, there is always a catch.

@hairbag1was clearly being facetious, at least that's how I read it!
