Gosh, I am surprised that the spammers are into pm spamming on this site. Nobody could be gullible enough to fall for this, so why do they take the time?

Here is what I got this morning:

hello dear member..!!!
i'm Abdallah from algeria (men) i'm 19 years old
i'm student at the university
so for my english is bad because here we speak french or arabic .....!!!!

I am sorry if I upset you
i have started scrapbooking this years ( 1 month ago) and i love so much scrapbooking
i'm a beginner and here in Algeria ( in Africa ) we haven't instruments or equipement or any things for scrapbooking
i have just some simple ribbons or buttons and some colored paper
so i send you this message to tell you if you can help me for my scrapbooking
and send me attachement or supplies or any things that can help me for my scrapbooking
any things that you don't need or any things that you have much
i will be happy very very happy if you could help me and also happy if you couldn't your answer make me happy
i send this message to 4 ou 5 members here
hope that i find one or two that can help me ...
hopefully

and if you need any things from Algeria i'm here to send you what you want !!!

take care
and best wishes
and sorry another time for my english. i do all my best to transmit my message (i'm studying english for 6 months ago ) and also I am sorry if I upset you

Abdallah

Uhm Liz - I'm not sure that Glenda is on the up and up .. you know she could have copied all those layouts from someone elses gallery. Definitely keep an eye on her.

However Abdallah really does deserve a chance ... I know there is a great neighbor on this site who would be MORE THAN HAPPY to contact all the major chat threads and solicit Walmart/Target/etc gift cards and we could then find a way to get them to him ...

Jessie, what's to explain? He's a lonely scrapper in Algeria who doesn't have enough of a stash and is reaching out to us and our generous natures.

oooh. wonder if he's single?

Considering that gas is going up to $4.00 real soon I'm considering asking Adallah for some oil in exchange for some MS butterflies. Think that's a fair exchange?

Maybe I could import him to Canada and he could live with my family (I don't think the other half would mind too much) and then he could buy all the scrapbooking supplies he wants??

Oh my, Ellen! I'll take a few barrels too! =D
My response to him was add the post to the beginner's section.

But I was so HONORED to be one of the 4 or 5 to receive the message!

WAIT

I am feeling less then generous - based on the responses so far we are well over "4 or 5" ..

now I'm feeling really snubbed.

Man .. I hope Abdallah realizes how badly he has hurt my feeling. I shall only be willing to help him now for TWO barrels of oil.
