    I hope you get a reply from a moderator or admin or someone... I have had a marketplace issue since 12-22-2011 and am basically being ignored!

    country when the bank transfer the money to you, Please you don''t have anything
    to worry about because i will send the legal documents about this Deposit to you

    Yeah, I get 2 or 3 a day. Along with Cialis ads & ways to make parts of my body "larger." Oh yeah, and offering a list of "lonely"married women that want a date in my area. I sure wish I could stop them. It gets pretty aggrivating after awhile !!
    Too much horsepower- Just right !!!

    I got one from "Mary Davud" also. Mine came in my regular email. This is, of course, a scam that has been going on in this very form for several years now. I once read a series of email exchanges between the perp and a potential victim that was really hilarious. The potential victim realized it as a scam from the very beginning and simply led the perp on and on with a series of emails in which the victim sounded really naive or stupid. He was actually very funny. Somebody with some time to waste ought to do that to this one.

    Yes, please, do it! I actually strung one of these scammers along for a month, feeding him just enough hope that I'd send money. I actually got him to send me a photo showing him holding a newspaper with the current date on it, and copies of his drivers license and passport. Then I just disappeared.

    RE: Spam and other jusn???

    Good morning R.C.Universe Members , I was just checking the Forums to see if anyone may have received some SPAM / SCAM from one of their postings ??? As soon as I connected to the Forums my question was answered !!!! This has been a REALLY NICE site for those of us who enjoy the Radio Control Hobby and now our site is being faced with the same type of E - Mail Junk ( scams / spam ) that we have gotten tired of ! We buy Anti Virus Programs to help stop this type of abuse and now we are getting it on our Hobby site . I tried looking up the profile of this ( marydv ) to let R.C.U. know about the abuse so they can suspend her BUT she shows up as NOT REGISTERED !! I was wondering how she can reply to our ads ( with junk ) when she shows up as NOT REGISTERED ?? I hope the R.C.U. staff are aware of this abuse and can help do something to put a stop to it with ( Anti Virus / Spam /Scam ) programs ! I have not responded to this person so I will be giving up my chance to receive the 3 Million dollars which would buy a lot of GOODIES! I hope we can clean up our site and keep it Respectable ! This person from Ghana , West Africa has an e mail address of ( mary_david201159@yahoo.com ) and is registered or not registered as ( MARYDV ) .

    New Year to all .
