Warning

Post by Heather Styles » Mon Feb 20, 2017 12:45 pm

I would like to tell fellow apterous members about something that happened to me. [REDACTED] conned me out of hundreds of pounds by offering apterous lessons and not delivering them all. If he approaches you offering lessons, be more sensible than I was. Which I'm sure you would be, but just to warn you.

No, sadly this is not fake news.

Wow Heather, I'm sorry to see that. I've never understood what Apterous lessons are, since I have been learning independently. And I don't know how they'd cost hundreds of pounds. But either way, I consider it criminal to con someone out of their money.

What exactly were the 'apterous lessons' meant to be? Surely you learn yourself by playing apterous? As a relative newby here if someone had offered me 'apterous lessons' for any amount of money I'd have declined rather firmly. That's not to say I think it's right for anyone to be conned out of money in any way, but I can't help but wonder why you agreed to them in the first place.

In any instance, it's still very wrong that he conned you out of money, especially to the degree you have said.

This forum really isn't the place for personal attacks, and without any evidence, that's precisely what it is. Fraid is a crime, and if it's been committed, it need reporting to the police, or to Judge Rinder or someone who can actually do something about it, rather than potentially slandering someone. I've removed the accused's name from the OP and locked this thread for that exact reason.
