    Default Warning: beware

    If someone suddenly call u, sms u, pm u, email u, saying he got lobang for cheap cameras, cheap lens, cheap notebooks, cheap computers, and ask u to transfer money to him first and he will deliver the goods later, pls be very careful. There are real cases happening. Pls trust me.

    As always, members should be careful whenever money or goods are involved.

    We cannot rule out unscrupulous members "cheating" other members using the forums as a means of communications or as a place to look for "victims".

    If anyone has encountered such activities or has been "cheated", please inform us accordingly.

    This is also the reason why I always do not want to post my contact information online. People can just grab your info from here and come out with all sorts of nasty stuff (with the most common being hijacking of sales).

    When dealing with total strangers, most of us would be very alert and careful. However, when dealing with someone we know, eg someone we met on internet for >1 year, eg someone inside the campus, then sometimes we may loose the alertness.
