Good morning everyone,

I received an email to my personal account from a "Paniolo Paul" King saying he saw me on the FOM. I want to make sure this isn't a scam, does anyone know him or are you on here? I'm confused as to how it came to my personal email. Does the FOM display my personal email for everyone? See the email message below:

Aloha,
I’ve noticed your posts on the FOM forum. I’m happy to see that you’ve made contact with the local FOMily.
As it happens, I’ll be passing through your vicinity next Monday. I’ve reached out to several members of Pukapuka, and local Tungane, with the idea of meeting somewhere. Let me know if you’d like to get in on this. I’ll keep you abreast of my progress, if you’d like.

Regards,

"Paniolo Paul" King

Aloha.

Yes, Paul is a real person on the forum here and in real life tries to reach out to people when he passes their islands.

The FOM does not make your email available to anyone but the forum system has the option to send someone a private message on the board or as an email. If someone does that they don't actually see your address, they just fill out a web form.

They should add some kind of member lookup to this thing.

I also received an email.

It was from a Nigerian prince asking for my bank info so he could transfer $375,000,000 into my account.
Apparently there was some kind of civil uprising and he needed to transfer some money...I don't know...it was a long email...TL;DR...anyway, once I get that cheddar it's adios losers!
Gonna start my own crème de la crème FOM.
With only people I personally handpick.
No more slumming it with you plebs.

Aw, man--does this mean I have to share the prince's money?

Sorry, it's already being routed to my account by wire transfer via a Mumbai courier agent.
