    Heads up, malacious user "William James".

    Received order about half an hour ago, from the IP 82.128.12.64 (Nigeria). Says he lives in Idaho, Eagle city, phone number belongs to a Mr. M, and Mrs. S Simmons.
    Zipcode used: 83616
    Payment type: E-Gold.
    Domain: invesfinserv.com
    Email: [email protected]
    Requested Password: i123456i

    Just to let you all know. A quick search on google for the domain pointed me to Artists Against 419 (http://db.aa419.org/fakebankslist.ph...O&psearchtype=)

    Quick search on google for the phone number said that the person was not William James.

    So if any of you receive a singup from that domain, I'd suggest you mark it as fraud.

    Thanks.

    Note: if none of it makes sense, it's very early in the morning and I'm tired. My excuse.

    Thanks for the heads up.

    In my experience, most orders that come from Nigeria are fraudulent. Also, in my experience, most domains that end in "serv" are fraudulent as well.

    It all made sense! Cheers.

    E-gold accounts are easy to get, my guess is he has a new one.
    What's funny is the guy keeps emailing me etc, he now claims not to own the domain and so on.
    He says my website days are numbered.

    Funny how he signed up with 1 name and his email name is different...
