If you are referring to my post concerning the Guide Scam.. the thing I am most worried about is NOT someone cashing the check, but booking the days and losing them. I would believe most guides do not want lose a day due to a person working a scam. Can you afford to lose 3 days of work?
Several guides in Florida had this worked on them. The scammer booked the days and the man canceled the day before they were to go out. The guide lost the days he could have booked and well the check looked good at that point. They cashed it..
Make fun if you will but I have sent out over 200 emails to guides and about 30% have been returned with positive responses to the scam and lost days. The guides in question lost days. That is what I am attempting to prevent...

First this guy posts in the wrong place.

Lost?

Then he makes a post that contains information that only he knows what he is talking about.

Does anyone know what is going on here?


I think he should talk to Mr. Abubu Nahimba.

ISpin - Sorry - I didn't realize you were the same guy who made the post about the fishing guide scam - wasn't trying to antagonize you, just giving you a good ribbing about posting your tilefish story in the Classified Ads..

P.S. Adam - it somewhat appears that my post may be directed to you, which it was not - it was directed to the OP. Your post was right on.

Occasionally even I am surprised at my own stupidity.. My humblest of apologies for posting this in the Classified Section.. I was looking at topics and not headers.. and this topic appeared to be more appropriate.. doh.
I will in the future attempt to make sure I read the Headings before I post.
BUT on another note.. hopefully you guys read the other post about the scam and will send me tracking information for any checks you get.. I have a gentleman in the local FBI office who is looking into the US Addresses where the checks originated from.

I don't think anyone needs an apology, they were just having a good time busting your balls. Pretty funny stuff if you ask me, good on ya for taking it in stride.

Ditto. And I was one of the busters.
