    Scam through Benelli forum

    Just a heads up I have recieved a scam pm message through the forum from someone claiming to work for the Bank of Tongo offering to share with me millions of $ from a unclaimed inheritence. So the first thing I done was to go out and buy am LE, RS and a 1130 to expand my collection. But seriously if it seems to good to be true it usually is.

    I had a message from them wanting me to contact but looked dodgy so I didn’t.

    I had a similar message a couple of weeks ago. I notified the forum admin, requesting that they delete member 'nr556'.

    I banned NR556 on 13th October so I guess they must now be using a different User Name. If so, please advise their User Name(s) so the appropriate action can be taken.

    Cheers

    I was going to start a new thread but decided to check in the search function to see if there had been a post.

    Ive deleted the four messages I received.
