    Default Scammers are lurking in this forum

    Hi all,
    i joined this forum to find parts that I cannot source here in Australia and recently posted a wanted thread.
    i was messages regarding this and told to speak to another guy named Christopher Morgan who is apparently from the UK and staff At ASM autos.
    he refused to give me legitamate business information and asked I send money via wire transfer.
    below is his email and also a message from ASM autos Facebook page, which has a few other posts regarding this guy.
    please do not deal with him, and perhaps you should ban profiles that refer you to him.

    hope no one else gets scammed by this guy.
    regards

    Hi Jimmy

    Thanks for the warning - hope you weren't stung!

    Here is a recent thread about the same guy (jsuther)

    Scam warning!

    Chris (Greenblood) deleted his account the same day you got your message.

    Hope your future interactions with Aussie Frogs won't leave such a bad taste...

    Cheers

    Alec

    Hi Jimmy,
    Sorry about that but I guess that's the modern e-world we all live in. BE CAREFUL ALWAYS !

    I have found the forum useful, amusing, informative and a waste of time, in not equal parts Still here though after lots of years. ENJOY

    Scams along with viruses, malware and dozens of other things are part and parcel of being connected to the Interweb.

    In the old days it was door to door Salespeople and letterbox thieves.

    We lived though and survived the latter. These you need to be suspicious as well as savvy enough technically to survive the former.

    Weapon of choice, because the evidence is easy to destroy or does so spontaneously most times.

    Nah to Berries. Get a Blackphone. Or run Linphone with ZRTP, or Twinkle in ZRTP on a computer. The spooks listening in will love you.

    Have you not seen the "must have" for women about two years ago? It was an old-school handset and curly cord that plugged into your mobile phone.

    You can also get rotary dial apps for iPhails. Probably Android, too.

    I think it's the apps that make them appy to share your open secrets.
