Here is this lady sending me this in mylot mail. You know it is a scam as she relates that her husband is hiding then further down she refers to him as her late husband as if he was dead. The nerve these people have....Does anyone know how to send this to the admin so maybe they can stop her as I am sure once again she has probably spammed everyone here...

I guess its better than having mods as most mods will be over critical.

I think it is difficultto monitor it and sometimes best not to have a mod start working for youa s some have a power trip. I feel your pain I hate it. I also hate lack luster answers.

I know, I received the same and deleted. I should have forwarded it to myLot. I thought let it come again I will do it. If you have the mail till now you can forward it to myLot people to take steps.

I've rec'd a couple of these too and don't like it either. I get these from time to time in my email too. I'm glad you started this thread because we do need to warn people not to respond to this stuff. It's not on the up and up and if you're not familiar with the ways of these creeps you can get rooked into giving away bank account information and allowing these people to rob you blind. I know most of us wouldn't fall for something like this, but some would innocently assume it was the real deal. Be careful everyone and it would be nice if myLot would boot this person who is sending this out. We don't need him/her here.
