Proflight Simulator Scammers back at it

Recommended Posts

Just a word to the newbies, Proflight Simulator is sending their email scams and spam out again. It is another ripoff of the free FlightGear simulator, these dregs surface once a year or so to lure people into believing a great new sim is out.

Is this a warning or a greeting card, I can’t tell.

The font looks different depending on the platform. It's near illegible on an iPad.

Cheers!

That's a GREAT point Luke. I think we all forget sometimes that many people use their phones etc to read the posts and that some fonts don't display properly.

I agree. I access the site on my phone frequently and I have difficulty reading red script also. No problem on my PC though. 

I do like that John was trying to brighten things up though.

I am glad you explained the font issue so well, I forget that color perception and font compatibility does not always work the way I see things, especially since I am partially blind to my left side--dyslexic in one eye, the eye sees but cannot read letters and numbers, came from a horrific fever, 108 degrees, I had between age 1 and 2, with my Mom claiming that no one had ever survived such a fever, but with billions and billions of people in this world, I know those are old wive's tales, lol...

I was so happy when Light Sport came into fruition because it allowed me to finally start taking flight lessons, but I have had to put them on pause for thirteen years or so because of illness brought on by PTSD, tragedy in my nuclear family.  I am just getting ready to complete my first segment of the Light Sport certification process, probably in a two place trike, since I found I enjoy them more than fixed wing and they can be shared in another pilot's hangar, put off to one side, lessening the costs of casual flying.   Buckeye or Willcox Arizona are my intended places to fly and own a trike within the next few years.

I've edited the OP to fix the font and color issue.
