I didn't see a "report" button for private messages so I'm just letting yis know that robdeluxe1 is a spam account.


I got this unsolicited PM:

quote:

Hi Prof,

Can you help? I have created a new film website [removed]. It is in its infancy and I would really like the feedback from a serious film fan such as yourself.

Can you please check it out and let me know what you think of it?

It would be great if you were up for registering on the site as well.

Thanks,
Rob

Cheers Spleen - account deleted. Also - I don't think they need helped out advertising by posting the site! Russian btw - you might as well hand over your cc details upfront.

A thank you to all that have let us know about these accounts. Obviously we stamp on anything we can see in the threads but we can't see anything that comes in a PM so we're relying on you letting us know. Major thumbs up and thanks to all those that have so far including people that have PMd us directly.

The vBulletin forums have a "report PM" function.... just saying :)

Maybe keep this thread up for people to post a message about any spam accounts they come across?

I've pinned this to the top of the forum so it doesnt get lost.

If anyone sends you a spam PM, please can you let us know by either posting it in here or PMing any of the mods so we can take action against the account responsible.

Cheers!

Ah, I just deleted it I'll know to report it next time. I somehow got an email to my hotmail account as well for one of those "I've got a million quid in a bank account I will split with you if you give me 300, god bless etc." scams which had part of the address as @empireonline

As the spammers have managed to hit Empire staff accounts as well, the Report PM button may have been moved up the agenda.

Cheers Taz - that account is now gone.

Must be an odd delay with the PM system - the ID was banned yesterday.

Netwoman is one of about 30 IDs we deleted earlier today. We're trying to suggest ways to either block PMs for these people or block an entire e-mail provider to try and stop these.

All the e-mails are more or less the same - I got that one myself this time.

ID has already gone along with 10 others registered - all are using the same e-mail and we're monitoring it to try and catch it when it signs up.

Ditto. Though actually quite relived. Was feeling very left out seeing as everyone else seemed to be getting one and not me
