There seems to be a spam bot ingress in the community system. The badly generated/translated message is a text-book scam. The notification e-mail I’ve got for the PM also triggered the scam filter on my e-mail. I’m attaching a screenshot of the message. User id is moureenmax22. All changes on that account are from 1 hour ago, give or take when the PM was send.
P.S. I don’t have a sister 😉
Yes, I just got exactly the same message.
sorry for that everyone. User is blocked now!
As wee seem to be running “buddypress” as a comunity engine, I’d suggest adding “BuddyPress Security Check” plugin (bp-security-check). It adds recaptcha on the registration form. Since the map is already google maps, it should be easy to get an api key for the recapcha service.
Got the Same message. 4 hours ago.
Me too they must be desparate if they have bald cancer
Hi I’m Andy Short. I am an environmentalist and have lived and worked as a teacher in Sumatra for the past 12 years.
Apologies if this has been covered but I think I have received a scam or fraudulent message via davehakkens.nl – does anyone else receive these? Here it is:
“I am Suvo Sarkar of Emirates NBD bank. I wish to share a business proposal with you, it is in connection with your last name. Please contact me on my email at ([email protected]) so that i will get back to you soonest.”
Just got one from same sender, don’t reply just erase it
Is there a “report” process here? This happened before, and the scammer profile was erased by the time I checked if the message was legit. If this happens again, should we keep posting about it on the forum only?
yep! just reported it to gmail but couldn’t select the profile here because I think it’s been deleted. keep your eyes open!
I got the same message, and the previous one too.
Same here, twice already.
We have deleted that user straight away.
While it is possible to filter the spam bots that post ridiculous topics, it is impossible to control what is being sent to you in messages. If you see something suspicious, report it!
I receive a lot of inbox from suvo sarka from 2 different profils.
For a business bank bla bla bla.
You too ?
Aaaand here we go again…
I would agree, a scam….
Ya I got the same
Same here, the exact same message.
I’ve also been researching the web and this scam has been on for a while……. Is there a way we can do something? Cause if we don’t it will keep going on.
