    Suspect pm

    I received this pm from a new member -

    Hi ,

    I just stubbled on your post on this forum and will like to know if you can help a friend or point us to the right direction. I have a friend who had a debitcard with a lot of money in it and will need someone with a pos machine/terminal to help process the funds to the pos machine with a fee of course. If you can help or can point me to the right direct i will appreciate. Thanks
    Anyone else had a similar pm?

    Looks suspiciously like a money laundering approach....

    Yep I got one too. My immediate reaction was that this is a scam.
    If you got a Dr card, and want the cash off it, go to any Checkers/Pick & Pay till point and draw the cash off the card, or any bank for that matter.

    I don't think its money laundering - I think it is a scam for you to hand over money and somehow you lose the money.

    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    So what's the consensus - ban for PM spam and chuck this thread into the whistleblower forum?

    There seem to be quite a few that should be on that list

    My "suspect pm" was from Markfort. Are there other profiles involved?
