Urgent warning. Another UK cbxer email cloned

Postby cbxmel » Mon Jul 02, 2012 11:19 am

Hi guys,

Just a warning that a UK cbxer friend of mine John Jackson from Pontefract,West Yorkshire has
had his email address jmjsix@yahoo.co.uk cloned. I received a begging email message today supposedly from John almost word for word the same as the one some of you received a month or two ago supposedly from me asking for money as he had been mugged in Spain. John is very much alive and kicking with his girlfriend at home in the UK and not in Spain. These message originate from Nigeria and they have hoodlums in Spain to collect the money if somebody is foolish enough to send any money.

Hi Mike,
You mean the aqueduct at Llangollen? Was over it in a buddies 60' narrow boat a month ago with our springer spaniel which loved looking over the 126 foot drop! Just a few days before they took the Olympic Torch over it in another narrow boat. One of the top tourist attractions in Europe now. Nice pub right next to it too!
cheers Mel

I feel bad that stuff like this happens more and more frequently on the Internet, never mind, At Least I have my money coming from the king of Nigeria who i sent my bank details a few weeks ago as he needed to ship money out of his country. :laughing-rolling:
