    Default sell your photos for 5000 apiece, or izzit a spam

    Be on guard against alleged representatives of Linux Corporation offering to buy your photos -- it's a scam.

    (cut)

    The contract gave the address of the company as #90 Sloane Street, SW1, London and gave the company Web address as either www.linux.org or www.linux.com -- the URLs, of course, of Linux Online and this site.

    In order to receive payment, each was told to contact the Halifax Bank of Scotland, where the company had an account.

    Next, the two men received emails from Bill Pascrell, Jnr., who claimed to be director of operation for the Halifax Bank of Scotland's Transfer Office and gave his address as . This email, which was full of grammatical mistakes, asked the men to pay for the cost of transferring the money that was owed to them, as well as insurance -- a total of 335 pounds for Patwari, and 1,035 for Toshniwal.

    I just ignore those mails the moment I see money involved. Everything goes into the junk mail
