Just got the same msg. Thanks for the heads up.

Got it as well. Immediately knew it's spam. Profile shows he's from Ghana. lol. 

I received it as well.... can only be spam

I also received the email..

Received same bullsh#t  mail from the same chop, these idiots are everywhere. BEWARE, is the administrator of the page aware of this ?

Howzit Dene,

Ol' Frank Kwabena has signed up three times to Shot Bru. He is obviously a surfer because he knows the answer to our security question (what stance is the opposite of NATURAL?). Ha ha!

Just a question, is he e-mailing you directly to your personal address or is he messaging you here on Shot Bru and you're getting a notification via your personal e-mail? If it's the former then it's a much more serious problem because he has access to your personal e-mail address. If it's the latter then it's still a problem because he is an annoyance and a scam artist, but at least he doesn't have your personal details (which is only visible to admin).

Either way we've deleted his third profile and hopefully he won't try again.

It seems to be he goes to your shot bru profile and then emails you.

Thanks Kim.

At least this tells us that he doesn't have access to your personal e-mail address but tries to make contact through Shot Bru. His profile has been deleted again and we appreciate being informed of scam artists like this. Unfortunately it is difficult to stop him from signing up again because he does so with a different e-mail address each time.

We are just thankful that our Shot Bru contributors are experienced enough to spot a scam artist from a mile away and avoid communicating any further. We'll be sending out a notice to all members to be on the lookout for such shady characters.

Have an excellent week further.

Thanks Calvin, yes he emailed me, I did not see a message on my profile. Not all surfers can be good I am afraid, we hope he stays away.

SHOT BRU DISCLAIMER:

You are responsible for the photos and videos you submit to Shot Bru. If you didn’t take the shot yourself, or make the video, get permission from the owner first. If you’ve got your eyes on a Shot Bru prize or a spot in the pages of the main mag, please upload to Shot Bru before sending your photos on Facebook and other surfing websites cyber rounds. Fresh photos get priority for prizes and print. Finally, by loading image(s) onto Shot Bru you are granting Zigzag permission to feature your image(s) in the magazine, on the website and across our social media platforms free of charge.

Waveski, SUP, etc shots regularly get deleted due to a technical glitch. This glitch does not seem to affect surfing shots, which shotbru.co.za was designed for. We are having our developer look into the problem.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are posting a pic of a secret / semi-secret spot or a sensitive location, DO NOT say where it is. Shot Bru is for sharing photos and stoke. Not for exposing secret spots. The administrator reserves the right to change the description or nuke the shot if you don’t comply.

If you are going to upload photos of secret or very sensitive surf spots. Be vague about the location, or better yet flat out lie. We're okay with either.
