Re: Watch out for this scummer

This seems to be a big common thing now. It has also been reported multiple times as well on another RC site I frequent as well. All so far have led to a scam.

Re: Watch out for this scummer

Maybe we should all start replying to these guys just to lead them on. You know... Troll them the same way Atomic Shrimp trolls the money scammers. Could be a lot of fun. Set up a new email account and start trolling. Could be fun.

I love messing with scammers. It was great when I used to be a fraud analyst for Mastercard.
