View Full Version : WARNING! - Content Request Scam

December 5th, 2007, 08:42 PM
The following email is from a message we received today at Helpdesk (http://www.auran.com/helpdesk) alerting us to a new scam that all creators, especially payware content creators should be aware of.

Hello i was sad to see that all your amazing articulated US steam is payware. I was wondering on behalf of everyone at Auran, if we could use your Yellowstone, Erie Triplex, and your NYC J3A in our next Trainz Simulator? We have gotten complaints about the lack of articulated steam and we think you can help us out.
Thank You
The Auran team
