Hi all,

Some of the forum members have recently contacted us about a HU follower who has been personal messaging them saying they are looking for relatives of a deceased person who died of liver lung etc problems saying there is money left to them. He is then apparently asking for a sum of money to be sent so he can release funds.

This follower has been sending personal messages to other users on other forums and HU are aware but he keeps changing his username so is hard to find.

Please be alert and aware if you receive any messages like this and do not reply. Please inform BLT admin if there are any posts and we will take immediate action.

Many thanks,

Best wishes,

BLT

Hang in there Faithful. Unfortunately life has its people who try to prey on the vulnerable and tbh whilst I'm completely disgusted by this person/s actions I'm not surprised. Try not to let them spoil your use of the forum because that would also be a win for them like actually duping someone.

Sounds like you need to go and seek professional help for your illnesses. Are your issues preventing you from getting help or are there other reasons? I'm not prying btw, so feel free to answer or not. I was just going to say that if it's down to your illnesses then try to get someone you know & trust to support you in making that initial phone call to start the ball rolling and definitely have someone to support you in going.

I genuinely hope you manage to work through some of your stuff, but please don't let people like that prevent you from using this forum as its intended

Take care, I'm here if want to talk and wish you all the best if you don't x
