Spam / Scam Bots
Please be aware of ongoing spam / scam attacks.
You can also post here the link to the spammer’s account.
We have been informed about a number of Suvo Sarkar accounts and spam messages. Please also report to us a message if you see him here.
Other spam users:
Hamid Coulibaly @coulibsulaim
I got one today also. Evidently Suvo cant afford his own email address.. still using gmail. Oil must be drying up.. 😂😂
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!
Just got one from same sender, don’t reply just erase it
sorry for that everyone. User is blocked now!
@xxxolivierxxx ; @flo-2; @jegor-m
I received this today and think this is a scam, the user is sow and private messaged me this
“My name is Rejoice ,am single, never married, I’m here searching for friendship. i came across your profile on site today, became interested in you. Please write me to my email ( [email protected] )for more introduction. Because I’m not often on these site. So i can send you my pictures and discuss something very important with you, i hope we can be best of friends”
I have deleted the message but thought I would share just in case others have got the same message or similar?
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.
Hi! Yesterday i recibed same mail.
Same here. Luckily someone deleted this bastard!!
Just got one from suvo1.
Aaaand here we go again…
Me too they must be desparate if they have bald cancer
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.
Thanks both, account deleted. Friggin spammers, hope they burn in hell….

Hi to all the community!!
I need to inform here there is someone sending scam message from this community with he following fake message:
“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.”
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.
Got one too
I’m Handri, from Bandung Indonesia.
Are you really in sumatera Indonesia, or in another state ?…
I got the same message too…
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.
