    AARRRRGGGGGHHHHH :GAAH: - I cannot stand those EXTREMELY irritating and poorly written JUNK emails! I have a huge pet peeve about poor english in situations like this! So annoying... I will be on the lookout for anything similar, but as of a few mins ago I have not recv'd an email like this, especially thru TGS. Very odd.... DEFINITELY STEER CLEAR! :wink:
     

  3. bahahahahaha!! These things crack me up! Seriously??? Any person with the slightest intelligence knows this is BOGUS!!!
    But I agree it is annoying to get them.

    Wow...yeah. Their English is horrid and sounds precisely like the English speaking/writing patterns of an African scam artist. Also, his name is Muhammed Zohaib. I still get tons of those African scam emails, they all go to my spam and everyone seems to be named Muhammed.

    LOL
    my favorite part is lack of punctuation.

    Muhammed is actually the most popular name in the world.

    It just worried me that I got it through TGS, I've never posted my email.

    Im sorry about that -- he was only a member for a short few minutes but he wasted no time in posting (all of which were deleted and his account -2 of them actually - were deleted as well).

    one of his posts he mentions being in Pakistan

    its an email through the board - it doesnt show the individual emailing you your actual address. Once you respond though they have it but until then you remain anonymous

    I agree about being worried that it came thru TGS... I kinda feel like this is my "home" ... like "Hey mister, you just broke into my personal space here buddy!!"

    There is an email option in all our accounts -- I will email you to show you.

    because he was a member today and I deleted him today ;) all without your notice because well I have this feature the allows me to view posts before they are actually posted if the individual is a new member. Cool huh?

    He friended me on FB. Then tries to send me all this info on what he sells. :sigh:

    This happens on Horseville every know and then. A lot of cell phone and shoe salesmen for some reason. :shrug:

    OMGosh - I just realized that yes...he also tried to "Friend" me on Facebook a few weeks ago, but I didn't accept (I investigate all of my FB notices to make sure they are true goat oriented people & not scammers, although it takes a lot of time..ugh!)
    What a jerk! That is SO rude! And I don't believe any cr#p about he's doing what it takes to make some money....blah blah blah... I'm having to do what it takes to make some money for my family too, but I'm certainly not going around spamming people to do it!!! I'm looking for work, using coupons for food, THAT is doing what it takes... Not spamming people!
    ARGGG! :GAAH:

    ugh I hate spammers...what is their point? Everytime I list something on Craigslist I get about 8 spammers to every one real inquiry. Drives me nuts because its just so time consuming weeding through the junk mail. :(

    Good job Stacey for catching it so quickly!
