Re: Strange private message

Omg! Belinda,that's terrible,god I've lived a sheltered life. I'm gob smacked that people would stoop to those levels. I bet whoever the "cancer cure" person is wanted money for the cure on their link. Makes my skin crawl,to think of people like that. Well I hope they never find themselves with SBC or someone they love.

Re: Strange private message

This sort of thing has happened before. A while ago now I and others received a PM from someone who wanted my bank details to give me a large sum of money which, if I remember correctly, belonged to his late sister who had died of BC. Not very nice to know even a BC site is targeted by scammers. 😐

Re: Strange private message

Hi both,

 

Thank you very much for raising this. We've banned the user and notified our support team. They will investigate this further. You're absolutely right pinky3, don't follow the link. We'll post an announcement to let people know.

 

Thanks again and apologies that you received this!

 

Best wishes,

Helen

Re: Strange private message

Yes I had the same message. I have reported it to the moderators as I was concerned. I would recommend that no one follows the link in the message as it seems a little suspicious.
