Steve Ramsey did some videos about this. It is kind of a big time scam (not really “kind of” though – it IS) I’ll try to find the link to the stuff. . .

yea i can easily see that he has poor English skills, and unless you posted your email address somewhere, the only way he can send you an email is through the sites private messaging, did it come that way or directly to your email…sheila is totally right, its a scam, i wouldn’t click the link at all and i would forget about it as fast as you could…he cant comment on the site unless he is a member and has posted a few projects, that is how its set up…so he is lying as to how he got your email..not a legitimate situation David…

David,

Actually, Mr Johnzon is my cousin. He is a financial genius. If you give him your credit card #s, your bank account #s with passwords (including your Cayman Island accounts), he’ll make you remember him forever! As you’ve allready deleted the links, just send the info to me and I’ll make sure he gets it. I PROMISE, you won’t regret it!

Hey David. I think the e-mail I just received trumps yours. I have copied and pasted below but it comes through kind of weird, albeit with the cautionary spam info. I guess signing on to LJ for love is possible. I don’t think I will be contacting Vicktoria too soon. “She” has 100 posts in 5 hours. I wonder how many projects she has posted? lol Check this out:
