    I got the following email three separate times. I know this is a popular spam thing (with my luck this one would be real and i've just pasted the information needed to collect the prize).

    I just found it relatively weird that I received this three separate times and it originated from this board. When I click on the first link, it brings me to the "contact member" section of this board.

    Anyone else seen this or know who/what it is?

    Rest assured, all your email address's are safe. I received the same email too. He/she sent them via the board, not directly to your address. He's been banned. I believe he was working his way down through the top 20 posters on the board.
