Got a private message from a JohnKone01. Joined today. No posts. Sounds like English isn;t his first language, asks for me to email him a for important realationship.

Do you think I'm right in suspecting he's a Nigerian prince with a lot of money he needs to put in a western bank account?

    John Kone

    His use of the words 'important relationship' sounded a little to scary for me :shock: :lol:

    Thanks for the links, funnily, I did a search before hand and nothing came up. so ,uch for ,y search-abilities.

    On the matter of JohnKone himself, there was this link from the link above, and it seems he does have a lot of money to invest.
    I'd better send him my bank details, then. Can;t miss out on an opportunity like this ... 71&start=0

    lol seems pretty pointless, who would fall for it on here? Cyclists are cleverer than Nigerians think...

    Well when (not when not if) he emails me, we're going to have the specialist relationship ever. Then you'll all be jealous and want to be friends with me and John.

    Well, seeing as he's already PM'd me, maybe I'll just reply first and have that special relationship before you. He'll never be happy with anyone else after that.

    I've got a number that is years old that I got caught into calling once. When I called it, after getting a missed call from it, all I got was a ringing tone. No problem me thinks till I got the bill later. As soon as I rang the number the call was connected at £1/min or similarly expensive rate. Kept the number in the phonebook so I know not to call it back if it does ring me again.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.
