I sent this to projects and I guess that was the wrong place to put it . I wanted to make sure my friends on Jocks got it. (no-name) to put in here or forum, hope it is right this time because 3 other Jocks said it happened to them overnight. I ham just trying to warn good people to be on the lookout this. My mother-in law lost a lot of money about a year ago on one of these scams. PLEASE DO NOT FALL FOR IT!

As I checked my email as I do every day I found this and was thinking that I should let everyone know that some one is trying to use LumberJocks for bad things. Please reed ,this is a copy of the email.

In the spirit of trying to be helpful, I would recommend putting this kind of post in a forum. When you post in a forum, each time someone comments, the post moves to the top of list.

Projects and blogs stay in the order they were created. After a while, they are several pages back.

There is a forum called LumberJocks Site Feedback that is a perfect place for a post like yours.

In fact there is a post there discussing the same topic.

Hope this helps, and thanks for the info!

I always wondered who would b crazy enough to fall for those kinds of emails but I do know an older lady and her husband that were scammed out of a $1000 from a phone call so I guess anything can happen.

Not the first time won’t be the last such message..
It is kind a scary when you first get one, I have this feeling I want to turn off my computer and then back on just to be safe, AND I DO!!!
