Exclamation Scam alert

User mgreaves has adopted the identity of an actual DVC member, Mark Hargreaves (and even has his membership number). He also uses as references relatively new MO members brandongur and christiangold; these, too, are fake.

This scam has been tried here recently, so I am making people aware of this scumbag.

Wow. Glad he was caught. In such cases, do you generally report them to some sort of law enforcement?

No. Didnít happen to me personally. I just do what I can to try to make sure that it doesnít happen to others on MO.
