SCAM !!!!!!!
« on: June 20, 2006, 07:43:29 AM »
Hello everyone

I just wanted to let you all know about a scam going on. It is being done by someone who says they are from this site. She is a D. Her name is Sussy Kamara. She is asking for money and help for her family. I know that when we put our email address out for everyone to see it shouldn't mean that we will get emails from people saying they are from this site and trying to scam people.

I just wanted everyone to be aware of this. I am kinda of still online, and am trying to get my internet up and running again soon so i can come back here full time. I miss you all.

Love Wendy

Yeah, I got it too...but I get on average about 3 of those posts from "Africa" every week and just know to delete them now.  The seemingly impossible thing is to get off the mailing list...

Have you guys reported these posts to the Mods?
Any time you receive such scams/spam, you should let the Goderators know.

"she" has been hitting all over the web. Its another one of those Nigerian things.

Yeah,

I got it too. Since it was in my spam folder, I read it for fun (I love reading Nigerian scam letters) but I didn't notice any reference to AIDSMEDS. I hasten to add that I didn't read it closely.

I mean one offer of $55 million from the wife/daughter/brother/whore with a heart of gold of a Nigerian/South African/Congolese Oil Executive/Cabinet Minister/Supreme Court Justice is much like another.

ha ha ha....Seems miss sussy is making the rounds.  I even got a picture of her!  The letter referenced the forums at poz.com, which pissed me off initially.

BUMP-

Thank you Wendy,

Isn't it amazing, most of us are starving and doing without just to keep a roof over our heads and some schmuck is looking at us as if we were a "f"ing gold mine.  Have the best day

The amazing thing is that even as hard as some of us have it, there is almost always someone else who has it worse than we do.  I met a man living with AIDS on the streets of Madrid and another one in Lisbon.  Neither had a permanent home, adequate and season-appropriate clothing and the money for a next meal, much less a roof over their heads.  It made me feel very humble to talk with them.
