Yep and I don't complain about someone pointing out the rules in any
thread but I do take acception to the others who subverted my thread for
there own self centered purposes.
I think I know most of the rules by now having been here for close to a
year and considered posting the whole lot in spam however some do not
like the tone I use in some of my private emails to offenders... I do
swear at them... So I just posted the response to show how stupid
Nigerian scammers are and to see if I could get some help confirming
whois etc. for the supposed bank the scammer referenced.
I guess now I will just have to forget about it and try not to get
scratched in the future.
