Gransnet forums


Anyone else had a PM hinting that there is more than £9 million going spare that they might be entitled to?

A variation on an old scam arrived in my inbox, from a Didier Morgan, under the username lofumorgan. It starts "Please read this mail attentively." , but I only had to skim-read it to know that it was highly unlikely that the £9 m would come anywhere near me, or near anyone else. I reported it to Gransnet, do the same if you get one.

I had one, my first scam email via GN. Reported it and blocked the sender. I’m afraid I stopped reading after the first sentence. It seems I missed a fortune hmm.

Drat! That's £9,000,000 I've missed out on, plus I never get the pm's telling me how gorgeous I am and they want to be my "special friend". tchsad

I've actually received this

Are you telling me it's fake?

Who falls for scams like these?

Some scams are clever and do prey on people's fears and/or vulnerabilities, but I honestly don't understand how anyone can seriously think that someone is going to give them £9 million.

I've had one too, didn't bother looking at it. Just had a feeling it was a scam.

Me too - reported it.

I reported it. Gransnet has removed the poster.

sad sad sad Now I'll never have a chance at getting £9,000,000.

Yep, me too, I also reported.

Oh, I never get these PMs either. It's bad enough that I've never been considered a candidate for luurve or special friendship, now I've missed out on the chance of untold riches. Drat. grin
