Beware of "Sarah Genubek" - sarah_2531@hotmail.com *Heatware Fraud*

Someone is contacting our members via email and passing off Lil Big Mec's heatware as their own.

Sarah contacted a user here about their WTB request and ended up saying that Lil's heatware was their own. Luckily our member was smart and asked for a PM from RFD to which the person could not obviously provide and sent a note to Lil Big Mec.

Again, I cannot stress this enough.....DO YOUR HOMEWORK before dealing with someone. Always do background checks on a users heatware. Email the ppl theyve dealt with for confirmation. if they have only dealt with ppl who have 1 or 2 positive evals its likely faked evals.

If the email came from a hotmail account, then report it as fraud.

Forward the original email to spam@hotmail.com with a few words as to why you are sending it. Microsoft should close the account and the idiot will be in be trouble with his girlfriend or sister.
