    It's freaky how you got via TSG...I got one of those before (and not from TSG), but it was completely in French...it's SPAM!! I do think you should report the TSG user though...if they scammed your email from here, TechGuy needs to know.

    Good luck!

    This site is fun for those that have the time and inclination to turn the tables on this type of e-mailer:

    Blackmirror,
    Yes, something to do on long winter evenings - perhaps with a small sherry to get the creative juices flowing!

    it has taken 5 days for us to come across this thread and I have no idea how many emails this piece of scum has sent using the forum email system & it could be in the thousands or even hundreds of thousands

    I notice the scam has moved from Nigeria, I guess it's bad reputation finally caught up with it. :D
