I do apologize for the spam, we are currently working on implementing anti spam/scam systems on the forum but it has been a little complex because most of the pages here are custom, which means that pretty much any WordPress/BBPress plugin available needs manual coding/tweaking to adapt to our forum pages.

In the meantime, please don’t reply to any of those messages and feel free to PM me directly and I’ll take care of the spammer account.

Regards

Will there be a report button in the future, or should we just send a PM with a screenshot to one of the moderators?

– May all spam be stopped, and may noone be tricked into sending their money, to pay for an airline ticket, for their supossed goldbar-owning, rich, nigerian, far out family, uncle.

They will just keep creating new accounts until you add the captcha on the sign-up form, and a “Report” button on the user profile.

Hi there,

I just want to alert the community that I received a message from Suvo Sarkar on Dec 7 2300 EST. Seems like the scammer managed to create another profile.

“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.”

Same email:

Hello de Blas,

Greetings to you.

In 2005, one Mr. Din de Blas an Emirate Citizen, made a fixed deposit for 132 calendar months, valued at US$8,400,000.00 with my bank. I was his account officer before I rose to the position of Managing Director. The maturity date for this deposit contract was 27th May, 2016.
Sadly Mr. Din de Blas was among the dead victims in the May 27th, 2006 earthquake in Indonesia that left over 4,500 people dead while he was there on business trip. Since the last quarter of 2016 until today, the management of my bank has been finding means to reach him so as to ascertain if he will roll over the Deposit or have the contract sum withdrawn. When I discovered that this will happen, I have tried to think up a procedure to preserve this fund and use the proceeds for business. Some directors here have been trying to find out from me the information about this account and the owner, but I have kept it closed because, I know that if they become aware that Mr. Din de Blas is dead, they will take the funds for themselves. Therefore, am seeking your co-operation to present you as the one to benefit from his fund at his death since you have the same last name, so that my bank’s headquarter will pay the funds to you. I have done enough inside bank arrangement, I will have to input your details into the bank’s database so it will reflect you as his next of kin.
If you agree with this proposal, I intend for you to retain 50% of the funds while 50% shall be for me. Anticipating your soonest response to my message.

Thanks.
Mr. Suvo Sarkar
(Retail Banking and Wealth Management)
Emirates NBD Bank.

It would be nice if you could also add the new Suvo Sarkar nickname / account name in your comments, so that we could delete it.

Yep. Same here. Got all excited to get an email through this site’s mailing client, but figured it looked suspicious and some Googling brought me here… Where all the legit messages at? 😀

Ok, so does anyone know how to correctly report this spam user? I don’t want to report the whole email, which is from [email protected], as a spam email address to Google, as it’s not them that’s the problem – it’s [email protected]! Can’t seem to figure out how to report THAT though? Don’t know how to do this without falsely implying the community email is spam :/
