Very true I could be, so please look me up online to validate I am a genuine researcher at http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/media/people/Research-Students/claudette-hawkins .
Alternatively, you can contact one of my supervisors Professor Beck to check that I am a genuine researcher bna@le.ac.uk


Many thanks

Ok Claudette, I'm partly convinced, you certainly seem to be human anyway!! :giggler:

I expect some one on here has had a bad experience so you should get some response, just be aware they can be a cynical lot!! :think:

The biggest scam is the government, they make me pay full road tax for a vehicle only used once or twice a week unless we are away>:)

It's a personal hobby of mine to torture online scammers, or scam baiting as it is commonly known, what are you wanting?

Hello Daniel, I have heard of scam baiting. I would like to speak to people who have been a victim of an online scam and who want to talk to them about their experiences. I'm not so much looking to speak to scam baiters, as I know this is a slightly different area of research. I am predominately looking to speak to people who have been defrauded online. If you know of anyone then please pass on my detailsto them, many thanks Claudette

I got scammed for a festival ticket 2 yrs ago. Stupidly paid the money into his bank account. Something told me it might have been dodgy but having just got the MH I was desperate for a MH ticket.
With the guys bank account name of F. Secker, I truly was an fn sucker.

I am involved with horses and ponies and there have been a lot of scams recently with regard to the sale of horse boxes and high value items like saddles. There has been a long running post on one of the equine forums.
I can point you in the right direction if this interests you.

Hello Anne that would be lovely if you could point me in the right direction. I did post something on Horse and Hounds, but the forum moves too fast. I have heard of a few Facebook related horse scam groups, but I do not know any of the admin staff, if you could point me in the right direction that would be lovely. Many thanks Claudette

11yrs, but many years a tugger.
So I wonder what happened with this, or, has it all dropped down a large dark hole. o_O

Claudette, use the search facility on here and put in the words "is this a scam". It will return enough hits to keep you busy for a while! But you should be able to find folk who if not actually duped in the sense they lost money, there are a few who were tempted until they asked for comments here.

And talking of comments, ignore the " noises off" they are all part of this Forum. For example, I am visiting Wales at the moment and they charged me £6.50 to enter...:)

Oops, didn't notice the date. Being only November she probably isn't back at Uni yet. :D
