The Reverend Father needs some grammar lessons!

Lucca I thought he’d only written to me. Has the money arrived in your account yet? I’m still waiting patiently since I provided the Rev Morgan with my bank details. I’m sure the money will be in my account by morning 😊

Hetty58 Sat 31-Oct-20 01:22:40

Yep, straight from a certain West African country, no doubt!

OceanMama Sat 31-Oct-20 02:17:46

I got it too.

BlueBelle Sat 31-Oct-20 04:36:50

Oh it’s not fair I want a share the Rev didn’t like me, boo hoo

I hope you have blocked him and reported the PM, before someone is naive enough to respond. GNHQ will delete his account.

Nonogran Sat 31-Oct-20 07:41:01

I too have had same message from James Morgan. Deleted it.

Witzend Sat 31-Oct-20 08:03:03

I’ve had it, too.
Nice try, Mr Scamster! (Though actually a pretty rubbish try, I can’t imagine who’s going to fall for that.)

The internet has certainly opened up to all the cranks !

It's best not opening these pm's or you leave yourself wide open to fraud. When you don't know a sender, delete and hope you've got a good virus protector.

BlueSky Sat 31-Oct-20 08:41:15

Same message deleted.angry

Glenfinnan Sat 31-Oct-20 08:48:43

I got it too! Hope Gransnet can trace the source and put a stop to this.

Marydoll Sat 31-Oct-20 08:53:38

Deleting isn't enough. Reporting means GNHQ will delete the account.

Galaxy Sat 31-Oct-20 09:04:37

I was about to complain that I didnt have one, and then there it was. It will be handy for Christmas.

Beechnut Sat 31-Oct-20 09:06:46

I had one and reported.

M0nica Sat 31-Oct-20 09:10:41

It probably comes from Nigeria.

maddyone Sat 31-Oct-20 09:21:19

I hope GNHQ will start a thread telling us the account has been deleted and warning all posters about the possibility of scam accounts.

maddyone Sat 31-Oct-20 09:22:38

The brass nerve of the scumbags that do this never fails to disgust me.

Marydoll Sat 31-Oct-20 09:31:49

HQ have posted on another thread saying that they will be contacting people affected by it. We have three threads on this, which causes even more confusion.

BlueBelle Sat 31-Oct-20 09:36:56

Well I m still not being donated any money I m a lost cause 😂😂😂

threexnanny Sat 31-Oct-20 09:40:39

I was one of the chosen too !!! Reported and deleted.

Stansgran Sat 31-Oct-20 11:10:04

We used to get lots of pleas by letter from nurses in Nigeria wanting to work in the uk. The stamps were lovely and as I collect stamps for the air ambulance it was win win.

Callistemon Sat 31-Oct-20 11:14:14

I had four private messages from James too, but I didn't open them, just deleted them.

Thanks for letting me know what he said, Lucca
I missed out on a big financial opportunity there.

EllanVannin Sat 31-Oct-20 12:12:04

I'm feeling very left out grin

Marydoll Sat 31-Oct-20 12:24:16

Don't EV! They have probably realised that we are not to be messed with! 😁
