    Hm-m. . . interesting. I believe this is a first. They wrote the same private messages to several of our members. I have since banned them. IP shows Africa, Ivory Coast.

    Good ol' Susan, I'm guessing she needs us to be the beneficiary of millions of dollars for a Prince.

    I think they went the private conversation route instead of posting their poison on the forum is because we can't ban them as quickly. We don't see PMs unless members show them to us.
