Spammer Bidchaser.com – Down Hard!

This is the result of going to bidchaser.com today, every second the error.php page is displayed with this. Leo Cunha, the “webmaster” of BidChaser, used a “double opt in mailing list” to spam members of the OAUA. The worst kind of spam. Do not use bidchaser. You’ve been warned!

Warning: mysql_select_db(): A link to the server could not be established in /usr/local/apache.1.3.28/htdocs/bidchaser.com/includes/settings.inc.php on line 16

ToyRanch at The Ross Board gets an email showing him what Old Troy MacDonald and his staff at Gegy has done for JayAndMarie (onecentcds) on eBay:
