Default WARNING TO CREW!!!

Below is a copy of an email received by a prospective crew member:

****************************

(From a Nigerian Yacht Club)

"We are happy to inform you that the above named club in association American Yacht Club is organising a voyage from Lagos (Banana Island) via Europe to America for 6 months starting from last week of this month (Sept, 2004). The voyage is of two sessions of three months each.

Crews are hereby needed for immediate engagement. The minimum basic pay is US$7,500 per session with other necessary benefits during and at the end of the exercise. Feeding and the voyage cost will be borne by the club.

Registration and application fee for each application is US$300 only to be paid for the processing of travel papers.

We await your prompt response with detail CV."

***************************

<font color="red">BEWARE!!! </font id="red">This is a Nigerian Scam. Do NOT part with any money in advance - you will NEVER see it again OR partake in any voyage.

Remember, if something sounds "too good to be true" it usually is. Be sensible - read the <font color="red">CREW TIPS & ADVICE </font id="red">at http://www.cruiser.co.za/crewfinder.asp

you would be amazed! there is a new spam ripoff circulating now on the heels of the famous Nigerian "I've got $20million for you" scam. This one is targeted on those morons that fell for the first scam. it offers reparations in the name of an embarrassed Nigerian government. "just send us your bank information and we'll give you your money back".

unbelievably it is quite successful.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE!!

Your email addresses are very secure within the system BUT NOT if you post it for all to see within a post on the boards.

If you find it necessary to post your email address then PLEASE obscure it so the email "scrapers" (robots) cannot find it. Use someting like: myname AT gmail dot com or myname [AT] yahoo.com (with spaces). Robots do not read these as structured email addresses so cannot harvest them to sell to spammers.

Member to member contact:

You can make contact with other members (posters) by clicking on their member's username (left of each post) and select "Email Member" (or "PM member") to make secure contact using the built-in database function.

PROTECT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESSES
