Have you submitted a support request? Nov 23, 2012

Seems suspicious Nov 23, 2012

Yet again, the IP address you quote is in Palestine, which is well known as a source of scams.

Proceed with extreme caution, above all get verifiable contact details before sending any personal info or accepting work.
