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!

Paul

[b] I just received this a few minutes ago. Thanks R/C Universe !

The following was sent to you through RC Universe:
-
Dearest one,

How are you today and all the members of your family ,I know that this message
will come to you as a surprise thing , but Please accept my message and
consider my situation after reading the mail, Actually, I am Miss Mary David ,a
19year orphan young medical student from LIBYA Africa but resident in in Ghana
West Africa. I am living in the United Nation Refeges Camp here in Ghana as an
orphan child, l lost my beloved parents in the couple months ago during the
political War in LIBYA , My Father was one of the Top Major General who die
because of the War to the Late Col. GADDAFI formal present of LIBYA.

My Father and my Mother with my only brother was killed in LIBYA during the War
in LIBYA last time ago, but Before my father die ,he told me that he made a
deposited amount of $9Million united Dollars(USD $9,000.000.00) in a Fixed
Suspense Account with my name as the next of kin in one of the international
bank here in Ghana West Africa and he give me some of the legal documents about
this fund that is in the bank here.

Now I have decided to invest this money in your country or anywhere safe enough
outside my country for security reasons. I want you to help me claim and
retrieve these fund from the Bank and transfer it into your personal account in
your country so that i can come over to your country and stay to continue my
Education and you will help me to invest the money into a good business in your
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
so that you will see it with your eyes and know that my transaction with you is
legal .

So My Dearest one , If you can be of assistance to me at this situation I will
be pleased to offer you 30% of the total fund $9Million United State Dollars
after the bank transfer it to your account in your country and i will handle all
the whole money into your care after i start up my education in your country.
so please i want you to look for a beeter School for me and also i will want you
to secure a Resident Permit for me .

So please i want you to consider me and my bad situation and help me out,i
promise you will handle all the whole money to you when i come to your account
next week, bellow here is my email address , please contact me(
missmary_d@yahoo.com ).

I am waiting for your soonest response to give you more information about me and
the fund and how we are going to transfer it to your account in your country.

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 !!

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.

Default 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 ) .
Take offs are optional , Landings are MANDATORY ! Happy
New Year to all .
