StopScamFraud - Terms of use

By accessing “StopScamFraud” (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”, "website", “StopScamFraud”, “”), you agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms. If you do not agree to be legally bound by all of the following terms then please do not access and/or use “StopScamFraud”. We also may amend these terms at any time and we’ll do our utmost to inform you of any significant changes hereto, though it is prudent to review these terms regularly yourself (by clicking on the "Terms" link at the very bottom of this website) as your continued usage of “StopScamFraud” (after any changes are made to terms) means that you agree to continue to be legally bound by these terms of use as they are updated and/or amended.

The main purpose of this website is to provide scam warning and protection against internet scams by the posting and sharing of scam emails received from internet scammers. This website does not serve as a community for discussing any techniques or activities related to scam baiting or the time wasting of internet scammers. Thus, any posts made by site members on the subject of scam baiting in any form will be automatically deleted (without any advance notice) by the administrators of this website.

When registering for a free member account on this website you agree to only use a fictional name for your username (for personal safety reasons) and not to create a username which contains any part of your real name or any of your real personal information. Should you register for a new member account, but you do not make any posts onto this website within 3 days of registering for your member account, then the system may automatically delete your member account from the database. Should this happen, but you still wish to remain a registered member of this site, then you may always re-register for a new member account at any time and you may use the same email address, username, and password as you did when you registered previously (assuming that the subject username is still freely available).

You also agree not to post any spam, phishing, advertising, fictious, fake, misleading, fraudulent or illegal content (other than transcriptions of actual unedited scam emails received from internet scammers). You further agree not to troll, defame, or dox anyone or post any abusive, obscene, racist, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-orientated or any other material that may in any way violate someone's personal wellbeing, safety and/or any laws, be it of your own country, the country where “StopScamFraud” is hosted, or any international laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned from “StopScamFraud” and with your member account and all your posts being deleted from “StopScamFraud” without any advance notice. The IP address of all posts made on this website is also automatically recorded and stored to aid us in enforcing these conditions. Notification of any violations to these terms may also be sent to your Internet Service Provider if deemed necessary.

You are in full agreement that “StopScamFraud” has the right to remove, edit, move, lock or close any post or topic at any time. By adding content onto this website you are further granting “StopScamFraud” with a non-exclusive but permanent, irrevocable and unlimited license to use, publish, edit, delete, and/or re-publish your content at the discretion of “StopScamFraud”. As a member, you agree (for your own personal safety reasons) not to post any of your personal information publicly on the website and that any hidden personal information that you have entered into your member profile on this website (such as your email address) will be stored in a database. Whilst this information is stored securely, and not disclosed to any third party without your consent, “StopScamFraud” shall not be held responsible for any hacking attempts that may lead to any of our stored data being compromised in any way.

Upon registering for a free member account on this website you are in full agreement that “StopScamFraud” unilaterally maintains the right to ban, block, terminate, delete, limit, partially disable and/or fully disable any site member account, at any time, at its own discretion, and without providing any explanation, prior warning or advance notice to the registered member. Members who challenge these "Terms of use" in any way will be permanently banned. You further acknowledge that any site member who sends any spam or fraudulent, inappropriate, harassing or malicious emails or personal messages to any other “StopScamFraud” site members, or to “StopScamFraud” directly via either the “Contact us” link on this website or to any email addresses associated with “StopScamFraud”, may also result in immediate termination of the member’s account.
