    Re: Report spammers here

    New spam style from Cambodia and Thailand - a stupid short "This is good information" type post, embedded link - to electronic cigarettes and a virus download. We identified one this morning as being a data keylogger - you enter some personal info on the site - they have you - hook, line and sinker.

    Another one of the "I'm glad i signed up ! Good information" types - in the Lounge. Malware link.

    As always - be careful: It's your identity and your money.

    Re: Report multi-post spammers here

    7 more "I am the new guy/girl" or "Lots of good information here" jackass spams in several forums - mostly the Lounge. As always, the embedded links lead to malware and virus attacks.

    Be careful - and use the Report icon in the lower left of a suspicious post - the triangle with !

    Re: Report multi-post spammers here

    More of the same as Post #182. With embedded links to malware and virus downloads disguised as "blogs" and "websites".

    Be careful - never reply to any of these fish hooks.

    Re: Report multi-post spammers here

    The clowns are again active up in the newer model forums - stupid posts, no info, with embedded links to sites and blogs.

    As always - be very careful: Many of the attached links are direct malware/virus downloads. Beware !!!

    Re: Report spammers here

    More stupid "I'm glad I joined" and "Kudos for good info" crap being posted in various forums. As always, be really careful - the included links to blogs and sites contain virus and malware downloads. 10 have scanned as virus-infected in the last 4 days ! Use the ! icon in the lower left of a suspicious post - that flags it directly to the Moderator forum.

    Re: Report spammers here

    The one-liner clowns persist in posting "I'm the new girl" and "I'm glad I registered" threads here and there. As always, be careful. Their embedded links are downloads of spyware and virus.

    The virus-ridden "Watch this online ........" paragraphs continue to be posted in every imaginable forum. Be careful and please report them immediately.

    Use the small ! icon in the lower left of any suspected spam post to send it directly to the site spam folder for action.

    Re: Report spammers here

    Just to keep this fairly current -

    The one-liner clowns ("I am the new girl" or "Glad I finally registered") continue to dump spam in many forums, with an added link that looks like a site or blog - careful !!! Some of these are either malware downloads or keylogger infections.

    The "Watch this online" threads also continue to show up just about anywhere....... same problem: The links are viruses and malware downloads.

    As always, use the ! triangle in the lower left corner of a suspicious post to report it to the Moderator forum. Alert CF members are the first line of defense for keeping the site virus-free and spammer-free. Thanks for the work.

    Re: Updated spammer info

    The one-liner spammers and "watch this online" clowns continue to try posting their virus and malware download crap. Many CF members watch for spam and immediately report it to the moderators who delete the junk almost immediately.

    As always, use the little ! icon in the lower left corner of a post to report it. Only takes a second. We now have moderators online 24/7/365, so your report gets acted on quickly.

    Thanks for the attention to detail - You folks are the front line.

    Re: Report multi-post spammers here

    Had a few real lengthy posts by clowns selling everything from Minolta cameras to TVs to oddball cell phones. LENGTHY - like two hundred lines.

    Some of the eagle-eye CTS, Escalade and ATS members have reported them in 15 minutes or less - they're quickly permabanned - and a new engine allows the site to also ban access from their computer or phone.

    The clowns keep at it, you guys report it, and the Admins do the do.
