I am a new member to this site, just joined the other day. I am a survivor of stage 3 breast cancer. This morning I was thrilled to see I got my very first email. However, when I opened it, to my surprise, it was one of those, My friend is an embasedor of such and such a place and he has this much money in an account and it needs to be deposited............. All of that bs. Needless to say, it was a scam. I was well aware of the scam because, I have received emails like this before in the past, another red flag was, the user just joined today. So ladies and gentlemen if you get a strange email from a breezon123 please don't fall for it, it is very much a scam. Thank you. Have a great day and God bless. :)

I joined the site on one day and the very next day, received 4 scam e-mails about some lady's husband dying.  He left all these millions, so on and so forth.  I thought to myself, really, on a bc site and some of us have really lost our husbands to boot.  Some people just do not have any scruples or conscience apparently.  Have a great evening all.

Sadly spammers and trolls do frequent cancer sites. If you get one of those emails, please click "Contact CSN" at the right hand top of the screen. Let them know the name of the person sending spam.

The administrators do what they can to block them from coming back, but some I guess are sneaky and can get back in, and there is always another one around the corner.

Please don't let it discourage you from using this site.

All we can do is report them and let the CSN administrators take care of them.

I received one today from Helen212 looking to send her money. I was so disappointed I thought I got my first private message. What nerve!
