PM

http://www.forumgarden.com/forums/priva ... mid=569609

Don't know if you guys can see the PM, but if not here is the text:

Hello

Greetings dear friend, I decided to write you as i came across your profile today at the web. My name is Mr. Altan Cansu Balik from Turkey, I have a sensitive offer to seek your cooperation to execute. Reply me through my email for more details. (altancansu.b101@gmail.com) Thank you.

Mr. Altan Cansu Balik.




I may reply to his PM to see where he goes with it.

Or, perhaps we should just give 'im the boot on general principles?

I'm pretty sure he is up to nothing good.

I did. I think we might move this out of the Moderator Forum so it's visible to the membership, there will be others had it too.

Ahoy, ForumGarden residents. We have a problem scam-poster who has sent a PM to lots of people here.

He describes himself as Altan Cansu Balik from Turkey. He is not to be trusted. He is a rogue. Don't send him money or marry his daughter.

His ISP is not located in the Middle East, he registered on ForumGarden from Senegal:

IP Address 41.82.32.76

Location Senegal, Dakar, Dakar

Latitude & Longitude 14.693700, -17.444060 (14°41'37"N 17°26'39"W)

ISP Sonatel

Local Time 08 May, 2017 09:23 AM (UTC +00:00)

This is not a chap to do business deals with. He posts elsewhere offering Hair Transplant Surgery, and claiming "I am a banker ans a hard working man with different kind of knowledge, am always interested to meet with someone new to share with".

He is culturally insensitive and has insufficient command of English to recognize that you're male.
