  • Studebaker Membership SCAM ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I've received several emails proporting to be from one, or more SDC officers and board members, requesting money to help them get home from some out of the country vacation site. Seems that someone has hijacked these folks email accounts and are trying to scam people out of money.

      We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

      Ayn Rand:
      "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                    I got one too.

                    Since I didn't think Nita was in the Philippines, I blocked the sender.

                      That's an old scam I last heard in Mexico. Good 'ol boy gives the night clerk at the hotel a phone number and says "If I die here, just call that number and they'll take care of everything". Survives and heads back to Texas, but calls home and finds out the desk clerk had called as soon as he left the hotel and said "Poor Daniel's been in a terrible accident and the doctors won't operate unless they have $5000. Send money!". These folks aren't all that sophisticated...just dishonest. Hotel clerk was fired the next day.

                        I had and email last year for assistance from one of our club members. He was on holiday just before the email but I knew that he had returned. The money was to pay for his hotel bill in Scotland.

                              IMPORTANT!

                              1 - Following up on post #12 from 2moredoors, the advice I received from law enforcement officials at that time is that the perpetrator has likely hacked into the internet accounts of the victims and equally likely already has access to their mailboxes.

                              2 - Under no circumstances should you follow through except to delete the email immediately.

                              3 - It would be helpful if you personally contacted the person(s) supposedly needing your assistance to let them know you've been contacted by the scammer.

                              4 - Consult your service provider to see if you should change your email address.
