This guy Bar. Abdul Mohammed, if that's his real name, is still at, except his company is now Halliburton Oil and Gas Malaysia. He's still using all the same words and phrases shown in this forum. It good we now have this kind of technology to avoid such scam artists. I just went to Google, typed in one of his phrases, and there it is, several individuals getting hit up for the same "too good to be true" position. Let's go find Mohammed n cut his nuts off !
