Business Scam

It seems ndt.net has been searched for email addresses, thus I
got a message from "John Strasser" saying:

" Permit me to inform you of my desire of going into
business relationship with you. I got your name and
contact from ndt.net.com"

The "business" he writes of is certainly ficticious -
don't get involved. This is only my second message of
this type - amazingly few since I heard of this kind of
thing about 3 years ago.

Re: Business Scam
No doubt that marketing firms can scan the Web for email addresses and of course NDT.net is one of their target. Not to publish the email address in the Forum profile is the only way of protection, but obviously this would stop also the ability of communication between NDT people.

I think we have to live with this situation and just delete unwanted emails.
