Default BEWARE, THIS IS A SCAM ~ I NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE READ, Tigre Salvaje, Panama

The Owner of Tigre Salvaje was alerted to this posting and let me know and I am shocked by what I see and read here.

The Owner has written to this person who originated the posting asking him where he got permissions to create and Appeal on his behalf and where he got the photographs [because these are the Owners photographs]. No such permissions have EVER been given for anyone to use them or to organise a collection like this.

I have been helping the Owner in marketing, real estate sales as well as moral and financial support, freely, along with another of his friends over in Bocas del Torro.

Please, please, please, do not send any moneys to the originating person. If you want to help and support the Owner, get in touch with him direct through the website.

His name is David Teichmann and his email address can be gotten from the Tigre Salvaje website on the Contact Us Page. Just copy and paste the email address and write to him. But don't expect any quick answers. Tigre Salvaje is a remote place and he only rarely gets to a computer to check his emails.

If you only knew what the Owner of Tigre Salvaje and his wife have been through you would appreciate just how reprehensible this is.

If you want conformation I can provide plenty.

BEWARE.... this is a Scam and one of the worst kinds

This forum really isn't the place for this sort of activity. Get donations elsewhere, IMHO.

I say these threads like these should be deleted by the moderators.

Threads like these should NOT be deleted but lessons SHOULD be learned.

This thread has been going on for some time now as some people have been donating to this scam since last year. Were was your objection then ?

Appeals for good causes should not be restricted but people DO need to be careful.

I think your answer to be simplistic and narrow minded.

I have not seen this thread until today, and I have never noticed other threads of this nature. Maybe I have overlooked them. However, this forum is about growing bananas, not trying to get donations for different causes. If there was a "no thanks" button, I would click it for this thread. There are millions of causes asking for donations around the world. I'm not going to get into an argument here. I'm simply stating my opinion.

Okay, my apologies then.

I did not know what this site represented. I was shown the existing thread and had to respond to it.

Perhaps the Moderators should have prevented it from happening in the first place because apparently this person Josh has now disappeared possibly owing money to some other people for plants.

I hope though that everyone takes note of this cautionary tale.

I also hope some of you will register with ecowatch and possibly some may get in touch with David at Tigre Salvaje

Take care and be well.

Michael

I agree. The moderators should be on the lookout for posts that seem too good to be true, especially when new members sign up and post asking for money or donations. With all the internet spam, some innocent folks could really be taken for a lot of money. There are numerous cases where people donate and their bank accounts are totally wiped out. Be careful everyone! I would hate for your identity or all your money to get stolen. Let's watch out for each other, ok?
