Hi Nomad folks,

I have deleted "Diwali Gala Night, Hookah's & Fair 2012" event scheduled on Nov 17 as a possible Meetup scam. The venue "Mantra" is a closed restaurant in Boson and about the six people signed up, namely, Rajni, Rave, Roshini, Tina, Maya, and Jeet - all signed up at least 2 other meetup groups with same number of guests. (These folks all joined within a couple of days and not sure if they really exist.) These other meetup groups (other possible victims?) are: Indian Friends Meetup and Boston Indian Meetup groups. The event is posted on Boston.com as well. E.G., "Maya" who posted a message on our deleted site saying she has paid the package etc. also signed up above two other meet-up groups together with the other 4/5 above folks (gangs?). I maybe overreacting and we do not have any definite proof of this scam yet. But please be warned for this kind of possible meetup scams with payments involved. But our Diwali dinner event which Dinesh is hosting is a real genuine meetup event and no payments involved.

Regards,

Mariko
