Member contact request via MemberServices - Spam?


Recommended Posts

Received a message showing as from Alamy member services.  It states a member wishes to converse with me and to click on the link provided.

 

It might be spam etc so I've not clicked on it.

 

Anyone else had one of these?

Yes, I've just received one from someone called "Miss Rosine"!  Ignore, delete or forward on to Member Services for action! ^_^

Thanks Spacecadet - I did a search before posting but the title of the previous thread on this matter didn't match what I was searching under.  Looks like I was right not to click on the link

.  

 

Cheers

John

Now that this weekend scam mass messaging has hit Alamy, I'd prefer they disable messaging over the weekend, rather than give scammers a full weekend pass to prey on members.

 

(Of course, it would be good to put something/someone in place to deal with the problem and keep 24/7messaging, but....)

Haha. Ann I just clicked on your website and I saw your Boxter photos. Great!

 

I ordered an S about 3 weeks ago in grey. :)

Thank you, Gervais. And you ordered a Boxster S - congratulations and enjoy! Edited by ann

They could limit the number of messages sent members with posts under 10 to 5 per day.

Sounds like a practical idea, Jill.

 

I've used messaging extensively over time, but haven't sent close to 5 messages any one day.

Hi, I too was quite suspicious, Received a message from Miss Rosine and responded via messaging and received an almost immediate reply that she wanted me to contact via personal email. Uh no thanks. Good to hear it wasn't just me.
