I have jusr received 2 PM's from a Dr Roy who wants to give me millions of USD deposited by someone of my Nationality and surname!!!
I should be so lucky.
Has anyone else had one, or more?

Was this the post yesterday , it said. Give me money I want it now, That was deleted very quickly. , if it wasn’t I didn’t get one from Dr Roy. Feeling left out , !! But I do know of a very rich Nigerian Prince who wants my bank details so he can deposit millions in to my account, Well just wait till he wants it back and I tell him hard luck Princey, I have spent it all , !!! That will teach him 😉

There's a place on PMs to click Report or Block Sender Nannan2

Me too, Corner, too scared to mess with us! 🤭

Left out of the scam message again sad. grin.

How do you report those?

Nannan2 Tue 09-Jun-20 19:19:45

I declined all private messages also.just in wasnt working properly anyway, it only just sent me other messages as well, from january.

Nannan2 Tue 09-Jun-20 19:17:28

Yes I did.i blocked it.

It is $$$ because the scammer is either in the States or thinks we are! Yes, you have to be a member of GN to send a PM, but there is no screening of those joining up. Any Tom Dick or Harry, (particularly the Dicks) can join and send a message. GN doesn't censor them! We are big girls now, we can delete them ourselves.

How does this scammer get through?
Don't you have to be signed up to gransnet before you can post?
It was $$$ too which I can't understand. I have had two but reported and blocked them now.

BlueSky Tue 09-Jun-20 17:56:18

Had one too! I just deleted it.

threexnanny Tue 09-Jun-20 17:40:24

I only had the one. I thought scammers were meant to be clever, but this was so obvious it was painful!

Froglady Tue 09-Jun-20 17:40:16

Yes, I had one and emailed gransnet to tell them but haven't had a reply. I was worried in case someone was taken in by it and got into bother.

annodomini Tue 09-Jun-20 17:17:34

I've had one of those today. They must think we were born yesterday. I just blocked it.

lovebeigecardigans1955 Tue 09-Jun-20 16:58:30

Yes, I got two too. Oh, to be rich but I don't think I'm going to achieve it this way. I wonder how much time this daft b!"£$r has devoted to writing to us all. I hope no-one falls for it.

Whoops grannybags that should read not grannywanny

BlueBelle Tue 09-Jun-20 16:53:51

grannywanny I didn’t either,... poor for life that’s me Bottom lip a quivering

annsixty Tue 09-Jun-20 16:36:48

We aren't going to get much each are we? 😥

Grannynannywanny Tue 09-Jun-20 16:35:36

Grannybags sorry but you probably didn’t receive one because I graciously accepted their kind offer. I’ve given them my bank details and waiting patiently for the millions to arrive. I’m so excited.
Once it’s safely in my account I’m going to throw a party and you’re all invited 🍾 🥂

Grannybags Tue 09-Jun-20 16:22:55

I haven't had one and I'm feeling left out now...!

Funnygran Tue 09-Jun-20 16:05:54

I’ve had two also. I had one by email a few days ago - exactly the same message but different name and this chap said he was in Malta. How do I report it to Gransnet?

silverlining48 Tue 09-Jun-20 15:57:16

I had two too, didn’t open the second, gifting me millions of dollars. Apparently I also have the same name as the deceased engineer. Apparently dr Roy is accounts manager of bnp Paribas bank so me thinks he is not to be trusted.
Reported and blocked. Hope GN do something about this as some vulnerable person might be taken in.

kittylester Tue 09-Jun-20 15:57:12

Millions callistemon. I got one too. I usually miss all the good stuff.

Callistemon Tue 09-Jun-20 15:34:33

Yes but I didn't open it, just binned it.
I didn't realise we could report a PM.

How much money have missed out on?

threexnanny Tue 09-Jun-20 15:22:23

Yes, also reported and blocked.

Laughterlines Tue 09-Jun-20 15:18:22

Yes reported to gansnet and block
