Thread: Please take caution

    Please take caution

    I hope no offense is taken to what Im about to say. As my intentions are well meant for all.
    In many public forums this past year or so I have encountered many post by people from malaysia & singapore looking "for help" they use the same formula trying to gain the sympathetic ear of who they consider "wealthier" nation citizens to break down & send them a few dollars here & there.
    Im not saying this happens here, but please before you send these people financial assistance or jump through hoops pulling strings from resources you may have in that part of the world to help them, take that into consideration & do a little homework on them.
    They always seek the suicide threads & claim their familles hate or abuse them & then mirror the forum community accordingly with the help of google as to the ailment.
    Many times they are actually natives of cameroon or nigeria living in other countries like malaysia.

    I suppose you are right, I guess I should have explained while looking around the site I came across a thread started by a member who's approach was very similar to scam I speak of.
    Many members were giving them wonderful support & encouragement. I don't know if that member is scamming or not, so I didn't want to insult them or those being nice to them by questioning their motives in their thread.
    Obviously, choosing to start a new thread was the wrong way to go.
    My apologies for creating confusion.

    Man, I guess I must be some kinda rocket scientist then, cause I sure got the gist of what they were saying pretty easy.
