The hemp plantation thread which was recently posted in this newsgroup appears
to be a scam...also the public sales of unregistered stocks over the internet
seems suspect! The origin ISP (global.co.za) has been notified.
Anyone who sends money to a foreign country for what is described below is a
FOOL and deserves to lose their money! I'm sure there's some idiots out there
who'll send this guy money...this scam reminds of the Nigerian scam where a
person sends money to another country in order to claim a larger amount.
Of course the person never gets their money back and there's no recourse!
