OK, I think this is where this post goes. I have seen a few people needing various forms of help, or have received PM's asking to help a fellow boardie. I don't mind the solicitations and/or threads but I don't contribute. I am not mean spirited in any way. I am just suspicious by nature. I am a retired cop. A while ago, on an AOL Board that was strictly for cops, limited access, etc... a guy got on the board and said he was a disabled retired cop. He pulled alot of the guys' strings. He said he fell on his handcuffs (some cops wear their handcuffs on their belt on the back) and broke his back. He said he was confined to a wheelchair. The guys on the board, feeling sorry and wanting to help another "brother" out, started sending him donations to him and his charity. They sent alot of $$$. I never did. IOt turned out the guy was a scam. Never was a cop. Never got hurt. Ended up scamming alot of people out of alot of $. He eventually was arrested in Ohio for his scam. So, don't mind me. I just don't participate in the send $ PM's and posts. Just suspicious by nature. I am sure the PMs I have gotten are legit. It's just not my cup of tea.
