    Report spammers - SAVE A COMPUTER ! ! !

    Please use the little triangle with ! in the lower left corner of a post to report spam. CF is currently being targeted by a group of middle east spammers posting gibberish reviews with links to "watch this online" types of crap. Be careful - many of the links are malware downloads.

    ...... and here's a new twist in late November: Silly one-liner comments pertaining to nothing, with an embedded porn site link. Be careful - most, if not all, of the embedded sites check out as a malware download when the site is run through a virus program checker.

    Re: Report spammers

    Lately, there's a new sort of clown posting "Glad I finally joined" and "I am the new girl" crap. Spammers, all with embedded malware and virus links.

    As always, NEVER reply to these fish hooks. You WILL be sorry.

    We do our best, but you guys are the front line - report suspicious posts/threads.

    Re: Report spammers

    You guys are slipping - today there was yet another in a steady stream of attempted virus infection website posts - "Glad I finally registered !" - and no one reported it. The thread sat there in plain view for 3 hours !!!

    Someone - a new member - is going to click one of these and is going to be very, very upset.

    C'mon, folks - use the little ! icon in the lower left of a spam post to report these jackasses.

    Re: Report spammers - SAVE A COMPUTER ! ! !

    Three usernames - maybe more - are using the forums for posting advertising spam for a URL "theautopartsstore......".

    vincentphilip, oliviasophia, jacksonowen have all been banned from the site. Please report spammers. Thanks.

    The clowns posting ads for "theautopartsstore.com" are still at it. Be careful. If you smell a rat, please use the ! icon in the lower left of a post to send it to the Admin people. Thanks.

    The latest phony username was "shanewilsonjr".

    Re: Report spammers - SAVE A COMPUTER ! ! !

    Nailed a spammer from east coast of China - long, wordy profile full of lies - JoshCloreu. These types are the clowns who post endless lists of junk for sale - cell phones, cameras, electronics, you-name-it.

    As always, be careful and report spammers.

    Re: Report spammers - SAVE A COMPUTER ! ! !

    Some jackass just posted a bunch of gibberish about plastic surgery, oddball oil in a nonexistent Cadillac, and stupid sympathy crap.

    Several members reported the mess (3 threads) and the site Moderators went to work.

    Good Bye, dickhead. Don't bother coming back.
