If members have received 'odd' personal messages from members who they are not familiar with, I should be grateful if they would PM me with full details before replying as they may not be all they seem.
Thanks

Seems the West African females are desperately looking for Mr. Goodbar. They use the internet to get in touch with men who will get ''involved'' to get them a visa. ;-)

Just don't let any of them have your bank details- and any offers that sound too good to be true are just that!

The West African spammer has been deleted from the members of this forum, but I am sure there will be others in the future too. The forum has not been hacked though, and there is no reason to worry about.
