well,to say hallo my dear might just be somebody trying to be polite..the things turns weird when this polite person offers you 2million dollars:-)(-:
If somebody you don't know is sending you email with the subject line "Hello My Dear...," chances are that things are not on the up and up.
I got an interesting variant on this a few weeks ago purporting to be from a pastor of a church in London. That was a new one.
Thanks for always bailing us out.
Looking at the profile before you open the PM is the way to go. Right on
I'm going to ask Jonathan to look into it.
But yeah, don't go sending money to folks you don't know who send you email! Or PMs!
I PMed Mary this afternoon after getting the same deal, glad everyone's on it. This is an international scam, which has some people flamboozled (there a 5 cent word). thanks for being on top of it. i wondered how this site got infiltrated! Ami

Well, I logged in this morning to find spam in my inbox from one Nelly2sweet in Ghana, closely followed by howls of protest from Heads who'd had a similar experience.
Needless to say, this is not okay, and Nelly's account is now blocked. Sorry for the trouble, folks.
