If you guys are being spammed through PM, please send a PM to a moderator with the spam details, PSForumMods would be ideal.

 

Here's a link to Moderator contact info:

Thanks,

Ya I did delete and report and ignored them and they managed to make a new account and spam me yet again. I hate spammers like that. I feel I should go on there dumb website and cuss and swear at them LOL


Risky idea, very risky. All the viruses and BTDs.

Remember kids, always practice safe browsing. :smileywink:

I got 3 of those private messages today on this site. I did not expect to get a "Mail Order Bride" scam on this site. I guess that soon I will be getting private messages from the "Nigerian Prince" on this website. :smileyvery-happy:


 The draw back to major, very prevalent sites like this. It's a target for spammers due to the high volume of traffic and potential "customers". Helps to keep the Mods on their toes though. lol

And that's where a lot of these things go increasingly stupid. You'd think that a "Moderator" rank would detour someone from sending spam.

As for a pattern, meh, these things come and they go. I've seen these kinds of things crop up on other sites. The Mods crack down on it and it goes away after a few days and moves on to a different site. Give it some time and it'll be back for a new round.

 

One good resource that the Mods can take advantage of is http://www.stopforumspam.com. It has a huge database of spam accounts that can be researched for either preventative measures or to see if a suspicious account is a know spammer or not, and if it's a new spammer the Mods can add to the database.
