Spam in PM
 
I've received spam via a private message here on the forum, anyone else being spammed?

Berenburger 27 Sep 2019 12:18 AM

Yes, something about hunters and cameras.

FredOnline 27 Sep 2019 12:26 AM

That's right.

I can't see a way to report spam in PM, so I've added this spammer to my ignore list - I don't know if that will block them for the future, though.

Bamb0 28 Sep 2019 08:56 AM

Yes I got it also.........

n5bb 28 Sep 2019 02:19 PM

Yes, I also received that strange PM and I'm ignoring it. Very weird!

Another site im on only allows new members to send 2 PMs within 24hrs ... Sounds like a good idea here also :)

Berenburger 29 Sep 2019 03:33 AM

The same post was (shortly) visible here on the forum. I reported it as spam.

I got 2 PM's today from the same person, offering me the chance to claim "$4.600 million dollars" in an Advance Fee Scam.

And I'm wondering, because he contacted me twice, does that mean I get two shares of the money?

TenFour 22 Feb 2020 12:38 AM

I received it too. I'm always amazed that these obvious scams keep coming. Apparently they are somewhat successful or else wouldn't be worth the trouble.

I will get two shares too. It's an unlimited pot of money of course :p :D

Bamb0 22 Feb 2020 02:04 AM

I wonder if ya replied to the message if they would reply??

Yes all that $$$$$$ sounds good!!

Berenburger 22 Feb 2020 08:23 AM

Also in my PM.
When will this spam terror be tackled here? Come on Edwin or moderators.

Chasing and deleting spammers is proving problematic. It is not simply a matter of a blanket ban which suffices in other cases.

For those members who are receiving spam PM's the best I can offer is for you to send them to me via PM and I will endeavour to block them. But I may well have to do it on a case by case basis.

Regards,

Jeff

I wonder, how they come in.

My PM is spam free at the moment.
