I`ve had an email purporting to be from Dennis Wake asking for money to get back from the Philippines as he`s been robbed.

The only link between Dennis & myself is this site, I don`t have Dennis`s email address & I don`t think Dennis has mine.

If it is genuine then I`m sorry mate but if I had that kind of money I`d be on holiday myself.

Can anyone from Get woodworking shed any light on this.

 

Doug.

It does not appear to be in Dennis's style. Until Dennis posts again I would treat this with the greatest suspicion.

Hi Ron

I don`t for one minute think it`s genuine, I`ve had to edit my post & remove the email as it was making my post go full screen through the adverts.

Cheers.

Doug.

I have had the same one as well. There have been reports of this type of e mail on the TV and other websites. The wording is not that of Dennis

Hi Dennis

Good to know all is well, I have just alerted the company of a possible hack.

Thanks for posting back and clearing it all up and hope it hasn't been too serious for you.

Steve.

I had exactly the same mail today reputed to be from a member of the AWGB Forum. Needless to say that he was not trapped in the Philippines either.
