Well, I did report it, like you said. Is the webmaster likely to notify us that the individual has been banned?Originally posted by Selma in Sandy Eggo:
I got the Africa thing. Purportedly from an orphan refugee looking for a kind mate to take care of her and her "propertise". If you report the pm, yes, they will ban the offending sender.
Unfortunately, nothing can be done about scam e-mails until somebody reports it to the webmaster. This particular one just smelled like bait - "Hello, I'm young and helpless and need a kind protector to take care of me and my properties" is supposed to trigger several kinds of predatory or opportunistic responses. Bait. As in Phishing. If you respond, I'm sure you'll eventually find the hook.
Well, I thought it was pretty slick, until I started getting over a hundred spams a day, and the admittedly flaky spam filter wasn't much of an improvement.Originally posted by Haggis@wk:
