A few days ago I got a PM from a 9 post newbie with a business proposition:

He solicited to contact me to tell me about this ASIC mining share company I could buy shares in!!!

Investing in mining gear is to risky in my opinion, so I was never really tempted.

Any of you had this happen too?

Me either.  Cry
Then again he probably figured that he would get booted faster then he could scream 'Nigerian!'.  Tongue

I was not making this up and there is a chance that the guy that contacted me is completely legit and really wants to start an investment ASIC firm.

However it stinks, why PM me personally, instead of making a thread here instead?

I told him that ASIC's are a gamble and he would need at lot of meney to buy hardware, so if he was real I turned him off.

So I don't post some guys personal PM on a forum on the basis of a suspision. He was a 7 post newb.
