My mother works on a forum~ Once someone was scamming people on there for money, and they had to alert the police in the person's area. Yes, you can actually catch those people. And no, putting in fake personal info will NOT prevent this- Information like your state, town, phonenumber, internet provider, and a ton of other stuff can be gotten from your IP address, and your IP is left on every site you go to.
So yes, the person who set that all up could be severely punished. The person my mom caught was sent to jail for financial fraud. I think this counts, because they can ask for account info and we paid real money for our accounts.

Very good post and extremely true Froggy..as another measure I would contact Ganz right away too. This is pretty serious stuff. Regardless if there is a lot of a little on the account. Malware & Spyware can be really hard to identify and get rid of.
It's really important to teach everyone, both kids and grown ups, that this is a
WOLF IN A SHEEP'S CLOTHING!!

I, also, have seen this ad many times over the past few weeks and just ignored it because I knew it had to be some kind of scam. I hope this is taken care of so nothing bad happens.

That's scary... I'm going to have to watch out for that...
When you think about it, it looks just like the "Win a Free XBox" Advertisements. They didn't even use the right currency.
