If one of our recently-registered users is private messaging you cryptic messages to try and get you to email them, and when you do that you get a Nigerian-style fraud email in return, please report this to me.

rita777 was in fact a nigerian scammer.  They are the notorious folks who write you emails saying you have x million dollars in an oversea's investment and all you have to do is provide your bank routing number, social security #, and other information in order to obtain it.  People have fallen for it and lost quite a bit of money, some even their lives.

I suggest if anyone suspicious contact you via PM on this site, you let me know so I can promptly ban them.  The last thing we need is to get assaulted and harvested by nigerians hoping to make a few bucks.  I also urge you to be cautious with any personal information. The PMs/emails usually have incredibly horrible english grammar and spelling.
