    $/€ rate is pretty good as well at the minute so timing was nice. Possibly a trip to Nigeria, I hear from my friend, the Prince, that the weather is nice out there this time of year. He's in touch quite regularly as well.:D

    Dan's being good to me too. I was unaware there was a hacking here, but I'm assuming it was just a collection of email addresses. I mean, I can't imagine Dan and his buddies will be posting on my behalf. :)

    I have started to get these emails as well. Probably very little that can be done to stop it.

    There is nothing at all you can do to stop people sending you spam. Some people have asked for their Askaboutmoney account to be deleted, but that has no effect as they got your email address last July.

    Best is to have a spam filter which filters it out in the same way as any other spam.

    I have been getting these mails from Dan Gilbert as well with same commission amount.
    Next week I should do better, or so he says.

    I have added a filter to my Gmail account to auto delete these emails on receipt.

    Still no sign of the money. I'm beginning to think the whole thing might be a scam!

    Maybe you should open a thread on AAM on their failure to make payment and what are your options?

    Meanwhile I got a mail from Norbert today as well. I feel like I am in a bad Carry on movie, Nobby Banker is getting dumped into my spam box :eek:

    Is it a coincidence that both Marion and I have only been offered the reduced rate, or is Dan Gilbert a closet misogynist? Furthermore one of his emails was addressed to 'Guys guys guys guys... and girls... :)', beginning to see a theme emerge?

    Dan hasn't replied to me with an offer of money since I mentioned his anti-public Sector bias.

    Couldn't handle his exposure on AAM , I suppose.

    I'll be honest Vanilla, I hadn't seen his misogninistic bias, but now that you mention it...
