    Posted about it without reading the latest posts. D'oh.

    As mentioned in my post, note the name and email address name are slightly different.

    AutoGuide's forum platform is really good at combating spam. Once we switch over, this should not be an issue. I just don't know when that'll happen.

    I received a private message from a Nigerian Prince in MTBR

    To the MTBR Moderators,

    I just received a private message in my MTBR account from a Nigerian prince. Actually, its hard to tell where he is from because his name is British buthe Claims to be a banker from Abu Dhabi but has a rich Chinese uncle who died 7 years ago but who has a Russian Name.

    I just only strongly feel he is in real life a Nigerian prince.

    He wants to Transfer $11,840,000 to my bank account.

    Perhaps MTBR Moderators can Limit These Messages? I have too much Money already from Nigeria.

    Thanks.

    Oh crap, I meant to give you a heads up. Me and Bob were riding the other day and he asked me if I knew anyone who could use $11,480,000 and I gave him your username.

    at least you guys can read your spam. I have a "forever" unread message in my inbox since the exiting of F88. I'm guessing the message was from the F88 founders before they got blocked/exiled. However, I've never been able to read/delete the message. Its just there as an unread.

    Broker fee. You'll need to send me a check so I can show Bobby that you're an upstanding citizen before I give him the go ahead to deposit the money in your account.

    But go ahead and give me your account number as well, so I can get the transfer in motion.

    Gotcha, I'll get right on that.

    I'll also include my social security number, home address, and a list of my biggest childhood fears to help the process along.

    I got that too. Seemed like too good of a deal to pass up. IAs soon as that money hits my bank account, I'm going shopping.

Based on this negative circumstances the deceased customer late Mr.Benson Rashidovich have no relation like his next of kin or beneficiary left behind to file application of claim for the funds to the management of the bank. Regard to this opportunity i am contacting you to stand forth as the deceased customers beneficiary to receive the funds in your country. I will use my position and influence in the bank in working hand in hand with you on legal procedures and direction on how to materialize a successful transfer of the funds into your external provided account details. What is highly required of you is the ability to be reliable, honest, trusted and to keep all information concerning this transaction and your involvement as the beneficiary strictly confidential to avoid public exposure, as you can understand that the less people involved the better. I am willing to offer you 40% out of the total funds for your vital role in standing as the beneficiary of the funds and i assured you that there will be no risk or anything incriminating against your freedom or reputation with your involvement with me in this transaction. I am hoping in the favor of your urgent response. This is My email: you can contact me in my email

    Shouldn’t this be moved to the Nigerian Prince subforum ( which is under the “Scams, bad deals, and shops that sold me tubes that eventually went flat” subforum”?

    I got the PM message as well, I think mtbr cleaned it out as I got the email several hours ago but no notice of it when I visited the website.

    Oh, and it wasn't $11,840,00; it was 11,840,000 Performance Bike points.

    You're clearly not a high ranking officer. I was offered $11,840,000,000 USD. A clear indication of my status. Not that it's gone to my head, but can you bring me a donut and some coffee?
