  2. So did you follow the instructions about reporting it to the admins at photo.net?
     
  3. Typical Nigerian Scam.
    If you have that kind of money you can easily have a private militia for protection and you don't need any help from strangers. I still wonder how people can fall for this kind of crap.
     
  4. classical 419 scam
    As Bob wrote : the first step is to report it to the admins
    But here are some informations and a "fun" way of dealing with the scamers

  5. I did not know what to do specially after reading this :
    Please do NOT report this message to your ISP as spam. Since it was

  6. "Please do NOT report this message to your ISP as spam"
    Rashed Abdula, this means that you should report it to photonet admin : Because if you rreport it to your ISP, they will lock all emails incoming from Photonet but not from the real scammer
    just complain here : please contact
    photo.net using our Contact Us Form: http://www.photo.net/contact-us ,
    or forward this email to gc-complaints@photo.net
     
  7. photo.net is a photographic and a coomunity site, when there is a member with no any sort of activities, no posting images and not participating in the forums, just hidden their idle , he should be deleted from the system, what is the use of such people for the site or for the community, if it is a matter of just viewing images on site , those people could do that without opening an account .
     
  8. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Rashed. I'll report it to admin. They'll check to find out whether it's a scam account or a hijacked account and take appropriate action.
    And now you know what moderators spend much of their time doing - chasing down fraudulent accounts, most set up for spamming, not too often for scamming.
    It's interesting that the spammers/scammers have recently figured out a trick for faking a subscriber icon. Lately we've seen several new accounts with faked subscriber icons, some indicating memberships of several years, that might mislead the unwary into believing these are legitimate accounts. So be wary and check the public profile page when you receive e-mail from a photo.net account unknown to you.
     
  9. Okay, that scammer account has been deleted. In future these types of problems should be reported to the site help forum .
     
  10. Thank you my dear good friend Lex, I do not have the habbit of causing trouble to any one any where but I thought this might cause trouble to other members that why I brought it here specailly with my poor English I did not know what to do.
    I will my friend next time report it to the site help forum for sure.
    Thank you my friend I always approcaite that moderators are very helpful and very much doing hard work on the site, you specially always been too kind and gentlman.
