that account has already been locked out.

thank your fellow members who reported it in a flash! :thumbup:

as a further note: i fell for that add several years ago. i took one look at the .... minding my manners .... "stuff" they're selling and demanded my money back.

to their credit, they did issue the refund immediately and with no fuss.

I got it too, I wasn't sure what it was but it had a LOT of FREE BLOCK patterns when you scroll down so perhaps that's what was being sent rather than the offer to purchase a book. Anyway, if you haven't already deleted it you might want to look at those patterns.

And as a reminder ... all board members can help us ... when you get something like this let a Mod/Admin know about it immediately ( check the user list and see who is in line at the time) so it can be handled quickly :lol:

We work hard to stop this kind if nonsense :thumbup:

Isn't everyone on line listed at the bottom of the HOME page with the Mod/Admin angels in BOLD?
