    Two reports of solicitation received.
    Permanent Ban in process.
    Thanks for reporting.

    USMB Members should know that PM can also be reported by flagging.
    It is always better to report immediately and don't waste time arguing over it.
    Thanks again!

    I suspect no matter what Nigeria ever does in the future, it will never shake the scam thingy. As old as the internets theyselves.
