News from HQ / SAAC 2023 Sweepstakes - Homestretch
December 10, 2023, 11:42:02 AM
Hey SAAC Forum,
We're a few hours away from the end of our 2023 Sweepstakes. Please share this post and let's see if we can really drive this home!
Thank you,
---
We've rounded the last corner and are heading full-throttle down the straight. The tower is waiving the checkered flag. There's only a few hours left to enter the 2023 SAAC Sweepstakes!
We've had an absolute blast getting the car ready and showing it off all summer long but now it's time to hand over the keys. It's your turn to drive! Someone has to win - and it could be you! Trust us, there's nothing quite like the feeling of driving a Carroll Shelby Centennial Edition Supercharged 2023 Shelby Mustang.
So this is it, your very last chance. Why not take a leap of faith and enter the sweepstakes today? Thank you for your consideration, and we wish you the very best of luck.

The Shelby American Automobile Club

how do you check fr meta data and or remove it ?

When that happens, just open the image in a Paint program and save it ,,,that will remove the Metadata

In Rod's case... There is some metadata in the image that is causing it to be blocked....probably copyright as mentioned above/

I'll investigate...but I "cleaned" it and sent him a version should work...

Your attachment has failed security checks and cannot be uploaded. Please consult the forum administrator.

What are the security checks?  This is a new one to me.

Try again...and if it persists, PM or email the details

Thanks

Thanks for all the input.

A displayed post count is an intrinsic of the Forum template. Its purpose is to simply add credibility to respondents, indicating a veteran forum status.
Unlike other forums, there is no extra benefit to having an elevated post count here.

Some seem to think it is a negative motivator... so we'll see if it can be blanked out

Interesting twist about these replies is the reference to an actual member. After looking, hockeylife has not been active since 2022. I assume he has no part in this.

Pat

That is absolutely correct. It's clear his user name was harvested, and coupled with the scammer's email address.

SCAM ALERT - Notice for ALL members

We have been aware of a particular SCAM that has been prevalent on enthusiast forums and Facebook groups,
mostly in areas for enthusiasts with requests for "Wanted to Buy."

I've recently been made aware of these potential SCAMS occurring on our forum several times in the past few weeks.

The way this game works is ---> a poster is contacted about his request for parts, usually through a private message,
and is told to contact another individual who is "known" to have the parts that are wanted.

This friendly "referral" by a "good samaritan" is meant to add credibility to the advice.

The message may look like this" "I recently purchased some items from XXXXX , he's willing to sell..."


The SCAMMER will then give the email of the contact who supposedly has the parts in question.

Also, look for obvious grammar and spelling errors in the message as an additional red flag


NOTE - it appears that the referred email ALWAYS has the format--->a generic first+last name + 3 or 4 digits@gmail.com

We have seen the referred name to be a stranger... OR even the name of another forum member, but with the bogus email address.

This is not a new SCAM, but one that is relatively new to our Forum

BE smart, BE alert

"Trust, but verify"
ALWAYS verify the seller and the actual existence of the parts.
Use Facetime or Video Chat to validate the items
Ask for a "hostage" photo that shows the item and indicates the current date.

Remember, emails with a format "first+last name + 3 or 4 digits@gmail.com" can be a burner, free, throwaway email addresses

and... always report ANY suspicious activity to us!

Currently, all club members have access to the quarterly issues on the Members Only site.
The archive has each volume packaged with special page turning software that allows you to flip through the pages online.
You also have the ability to download the issue as a PDF and read it offline.

The page-turning software is a complex and expensive feature; we'd like to evaluate its importance for the new version of the website.

How do you access the issues? Let us know...

Do you use the page reader online? ...or do you download the file?

Thanks
Ron
