So,

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!

The same thing happened around 2 weeks ago: Spam/scam bots. I think when the folks from precious plastic know of the spam/scam they’ll take care of it just as last time!

@plastikfantastik
Maybe he just wanted to be your friend 🙂
Joking aside, I just looked for that member but cannot find any profile named SOW, so I guess it was already deleted https://davehakkens.nl/community/members/sow/

Please write me to my email ( [email protected] )for more introduction. Because I’m not often on these site.

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

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.

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.
