Mods - I cannot report a PM


Recommended Posts

Dear Alamy team

 

Until today I was not even aware that you have a discussion forum.   I received a PM from an individual who insisted I only contact them on a hotmail account.   To me this is very obvious spam but it seems that the report button on the messages does not work (possibly because this is my first and possibly only post to the forum).

 

Would appreciate if you can look into this

 

Thanks

Received the same myself.

 

Looks like they just want to chat with others. Maybe kicked off most social network sites.

Must be working alphabetically through the forum member list. All reports are from members whose names begin with a,b or c so far. I've not received mine yet. It will be Monday before anybody at Alamy reads the reports I assume.

Just got mine so she has reached the end of the alphabet.

I think it sorts by first name so you are Cr not Y

She (assuming she's a she) is at least as far as CLSI.

I got one too. I suspect that some sort of script is being used to generate the emails? Has anyone (inadvertently) replied to see what she wants to communicate about ??? No doubt some scam or other.

Gee, I thought she was only interested in me . . . because of my good looks and sunny personality.  :rolleyes:

 

Would you like to buy my unicorn?

 

 

 

You have a unicorn? Wow! Can I trade you for my percentage in the ownership of the Brooklyn Bridge?

Yes also received - the problems with open forums that are easy to sign up on.

 

"Hello,

My name is miss Rosine, i saw your profile and it drew my attention to write to you. I would like you to communicate me through my e-mail address

(RosineSmith23@hotmail.com)

Rosine"

 

 

Also got the exact same email obviously data farming

Googling the email address, RosineSmith23@hotmail.com, it appears she sends the same thing to all sorts of folks. As you say, obviously data farming. That, or one very lonely girl.

She reached the letter V!!

 

 

Erm, your username begins with a G, Gen!

 

I can confirm that she's now reached I.
