Someone said :
This topic is about the various email scams that are currently doing the rounds on the web and also here via our own mail system. Please read the information below as it may help you to avoid becoming a victim.

If you are renting a property or selling something in the classifieds you should be wary of accepting cheques. A common scam is for the buyer to mistakenly send a cheque that far exceeds the item's price whereby you are "trusted" to wire back the balance. In this case the cheque will usually fail to clear and if you had wired the balance you will have lost your money.

To avoid this happening you should only accept cheques from people you know. Do not cash cheques that are above the price that was agreed. Alternatively you can arrange to meet in person and exchange the item for cash.

Sometimes you may be contacted under the guise of friendship / relationship but the scammer's ultimate goal is to get your personal details, bank account number, and perhaps even steal your identity. Things to look out for include :

- They clearly haven't read your profile (you're gay / they're straight)
- They live in a distant country
- They want you to reply to their email address
- They are talking about love despite having never met you
- Their English is sometimes quite poor

Below are a few examples of this.


Some scams involve people in a distant country who wish to hide huge sums of money in your bank account - with a generous fee for you of course, see example below.


Should you come across any mail that makes you suspicious please use the message report facility - click the "Report Abusive Mail" button found at the bottom of the message.
