I got it too - this is very disturbing. Dave, you need to deal with this immediately... I will have to block emails from your account until the issue is resolved. Please post here when your email is safe again.

Someone needs to get the word to Goose his e-mail has been hacked. Unless he happens to be in the Phillipines begging for donations for a family emergency, odds are he has lost access.

Its a shame that these scam bots aren´t intelligent enough to pick up some context ... if it had looked like this, I might have answered.

Dear friend,

I contact you for assistance in resolving a matter. I have recently lost access to a cache of 14.000 gold bars, worth $16,000,000, stored in a bank vault in the town of Clermont. I am unable to move these funds to another region. You assistance is requested to assist in moving these funds out of France. If it will be possible for you to assist us, we would be most grateful. We suggest that you meet with us in person, and that during your visit I introduce you to the other members of our team. Please call me at your earliest convenience. Time is of the essence in this matter; very quickly the Government will realize that the Bank is maintaining this amount on deposit, and attempt to levy certain depository taxes on it.

Yours truly,

Private Kelly

For the tournament, ask the Slitherine to create an e-mail for you on their corporate website.

For the home, change the password to a more secure one.

"How are you doing today?
Can you do me a favor please
Thanks

Carrie"
just recived this email from 'garlichdavid@aol.com'


2nd email came like this:
Good to hear from you. I'm sorry to bother you with this but it is a bad time for me . I had to make a sudden trip to Manila Philippines due to some urgent matters to help my sick sister, she was diagnosed with (Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia) a type of Blood Cancer and had been undergoing treatment lately. The news of her illness arrived to me as an emergency.

The hospital management is demanding for a deposit before they can carry out the surgery operation to save her life and I traveled down here with little money because I never expected things to be the way it is right now. Can you assist me with a loan? I'll surely pay back as soon as I get back home.

Please, let me know if you can be of help so I can advise on how to transfer the funds. I’ll be happy to hear from you soon regarding my request and please remember to keep this private.

Regards,

Carrie

Round 1 results from Warhomer - Fabio3110

It was a close call, but Warhomer won as Axis in turn 12, and Fabio3110 won as Axis in turn 13, so I guess I take this one.

Thanks Fabio3110 for a fun and close game, and GL in round 2.

I knew it was a hack. No problem here goose_2.
Maybe you could create a Yahoo mail account ( for example ) just for your tournaments.

Goose,

I doubt very seriously the tourney is the reason for the hack. I had a customer that had the same thing happen about a year ago. It had the same "I'm stuck in Manila and need help" line...with a slight deviation from the sick relative story. I'm guessing the Manila part is crucial if someone falls for the scam. They probably give instructions to send money to a Manila location. Most likely you got hit with a phishing e-mail and didn't realize it. It's not a big deal. Really, is there anyone that got the e-mail that would even think about sending you money, who would believe you were in Manila? Now if some Nigerian prince wrote asking for something, that would be a whole 'nother ball game....heh

Our game has ended. I believe I am the winner, but correct me otherwise

Ratprince vs Vincat

Ratprince won as German on turn 11
vincat won as German on turn 16

Does this make me the overall winner of our match?

Thanks again for organizing!

Hi,

here´s the result of Muwattali vs Thorsten

Muwattali won in turn 12

A very close run game with a lucky end for me.
