    Hi,

    Yep.. That's what we do as moderators here as part of out duty.. Root this misleading stuff out from the genuine forum discussions.

    All members are most welcome to report a scam, we as a team will take them seriously...

    Yup. I saw that [you] got woken up earlier on today, hence my response. Interesting that the article I posted mentioned Curalin as an example.

    Here in Australia we have a federal government department called the ACCC which has a scam page containing "The Little Black Book of Scams" on it.

    Since most of these scams are the same globally it is worth downloading, they have a hard cover version as well.

    Jesus can do miracle cures apparently. :shifty:
