The Committee and Moderating team has become aware in relation to some other forums that a scammer may be trying to obtain forum usersí bank details. This is obviously another variant of the Nigerian 419 or Advance fee scam, where an individualís bank details are requested or an advance payment (in which the target is persuaded to advance sums of money in the hope of realizing a significantly larger gain later on) is requested before a fraud is then carried out or perpetuated.

The Committee and Moderating team would particularly like to emphasise that you should never send money or (more importantly with the present scam) your bank details to anyone whom you don't know and trust.

You will never be asked for your bank details by the Committee and Moderating team, nor, without at the very least some very detailed discussions, by any of our recognised and trusted traders in the Tradersí section of the forum.

Remember the golden rule: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

2007 350Z (my second Zed) - ". . . vigorously shakes out all your loose change and sends you hyperventilating on your way".
2011 Yaris 1.33 (my third Yaris) - With an extra 30cc and an extra gear it's become the S-Class of small cars.  Far less pretentious though - good.
