I just got a reply for an add of a mast on this site. On the first contact, The buyer who seemed very interested, just didn't sound like a windsurfer! On his second e mail, which came directly to my e mail. the message sounded too generic and suspicious. I believe it is some kind of spam! Absolutely no typical 'windsurfing equipment' questions or any mention of a mast!! Just requested some basic info like address and phone and said that he will send his shipper with a certified cheque which will be cleared by my bank before I release the mast! This is fucked! I deleted! The person (or whatever) contacted me by the name of Alexander Aiden!

Hey folks. Just letting you know.

This individuals e-mail account at TWC was deleted and blocked from further registration. TWC is doing what it can. If you see any suspicious e-mail responses delete them. No point encouraging this.


Thanks Chuck M, TWC Volunteer
