I received the same messages and Littlelife also asked about the Juniper End Table. I wonder if Candy Hicks also got these?

I got the e mail on the Juniper table.I thought they were talking about my Juniper end tables that I have under my projects.But I always get a little hesitant when they can not spell and word things strangely.Thought I would wait a few days to see if anyone else would post scams and sure enough!!!Can always count on everyone hear to warn others.Probably should warn Martin.

I got a PM from a member asking if I would give my e mail so we could communicate directly but after I gave it I did hear from him after that . I now have received one of these scam e mails. Has any one else done the same thing.

I got the same one from Littlelife that Topamaxsurvivor got from Pozzy. Notice the yahoo adress is a man’s address, unless there is a woman named Jimmy. I PMed Martin earlier and he said he blocked Littlelife’s account.

I noticed that too. Should have signed in as Lowlife, but I guess Littlelife is pretty close, isn’t it :-))?
