Thumbs up Personal Message...

Hi all,
Jus' logged on and opened a personal message I received, just wondering if anyone else has received anything like this in their PM boxes...

'Dear sir,
I am Tikhomirov Evgueni; I represent a top company executive in Russia. I have a very sensitive and private brief from this top executive to ask for your partnership to re-profile funds over 25, 000,000.00 European currency. I will give the details, but in summary, the funds are coming via a bank in Europe,and this is a legitimate transaction.

You will be paid 5% for your "management/consultancy price", if I am able to reach terms with you.If you are able to work to earn this price, please write back immediately by email;tikgueni@gala.net, and provide me with your private telephone number, and I will provide further details.

Please keep this close to your chest as much as
possible; we can not afford any political problems in
Russia.

Write me back. I look forward to it.

Regards,
Tikhomirov.'

I know what I think to this LOL, what do you guys think?!...Chris.....

Same scam but with a nifty Russian twist!
I wonder how many people actually fall for this stuff.

Was this received through a 'Private Message' or 'E-mail'? These sorts of coorespondences will not be tolerated through the forum!

Have any other members received the same? Please let a moderator know...ASAP!

I have not, but if he does he has to send the money in cash (american bills) and I will send him back 3%.

Russan Scam in private Email.

Ok guys,
If you haven't figured it out yet, this is the same Nigerian scam that's been going around the last couple of years. If fact, last week here in So. California a tv producer took the bate. He got a check for 50K and when he took it to the bank, he found out that it was a forged check. Next thing you know, the Nigerian Mob came looking for him at his home. He had to run out. He'd been missing for a week, had search parties looking for him. A few days ago, the County Sheriff found him naked washing his jeans in a creek. He told them what had happen.

Also, if you go to www.snoops.com you'll probably see this scam and see the various other scams that are going on.

It was obviously a scam, the bigger concern I had was, that he used the forums as a means of distribution...
