My experience on ebay is not good either. I purchased a copy of Nuendo 2 last week and upon trying to rgeister it was told by Steinberg UK that the product was a NFR (Not For Resale) and that they would not allow me to upgrade.

Thankfully I am getting my money back, but I have since come across another copy for purchase. This time I am taking the liberty of checking the serial number with Steinberg before any purchase is made, as to verify the validity of the product.

On the actual description of the frauds:

FBI fraud schemes page

Our members in the USA should contact the FBI if they have been in contact with the morons, especially if they have started some more serious talk with them. One member is short of $2700 so it's no laughing matter.

In France, tell the the Brigade Financière in Paris, similar services are available at least in UK and Australia as far as I know. If you know the relevant services, tell us all!

Now if you use the classifieds, or if anyone contact you to propose such deal, PLEASE, keep the original email or PM coming thru macmusic. It'll help us to track the morons and ban them on the spot. angry.gif

The morons are still around, just nuked one wink.gif laugh.gif

Don't accept a check of a higher amount than necessary, refuse Western Union, use money escrows!!!
Any transaction should be simple, clear, with nothing including a third person (save a real money escrow service).

Pay attention to any detail!

If you have a doubt, ask me!

In private, send me: the PMs or emails (from the first), the email address or Member login. I am able to tell you if he's a moron or not. wink.gif

Note that I'm still killing on sight scammers accounts. So be careful! If you have a doubt, ask me!!! I have the means to tell where most members are in reality. (don't believe they don't scam elsewhere, they are all over the Net unfortunately).

I strongly advise people not to trade with people from Africa at the moment, and as I've said and repeated: no western Union, no huge check to balance etc.

As I'm still on the prowl to ban our &#@$€$ scammers from MM…

I've received this this evening :
QUOTE
lepetitmartien,

aicham has sent you this email from http://www.macmusic.org/agora/forums/index.php.


Dearest,

Good a thing writing you, I hope today finds you well. I felt greatly impressed after reading your profile today. My name is jennifer kossa:

Please I have some thing to discuss with you and it is very important and urgent. I will like you to write me on my email address to enable us discuss in details. I really want to discuss this with you and we get to know each other more better. My E-mail is: jennifer_kossa1@yahoo.fr


I hope hearing from you soonest. I willl send you my picture as soon as you contact me in my email.(jennifer_kossa1@yahoo.fr)
Thanks for your understanding.

This is scam!

If you happen to receive something in the same idea, it's just a trick to lure at giving your email, as long as you don't answer your emails are safe, MM doesn't disclove them. This mail was sent by the MM server, not the scammer.

Don't answer, but signal me the offender (full mail or PM with login of the scammer)

Now back at banning his little comrades wink.gif angry.gif
