#1 Spam email complaint

Post by Heuer » Mon Apr 23, 2018 4:33 pm

New user 'Fasthound1963OTS' has just contacted me as follows:

"I signed up for this forum yesterday and today, my span folder was filled with TWENTY FIVE pieces of spam e-mail using the email address I used to sign up here. Typically I'll have 4 or 5.

Clearly your site has issues. I would appreciate it if you would do more to secure your site from crap like this.

Thanks,
Kevin"


An interesting way to introduce yourself to our community but that aside, anyone else having such problems?

No more here than usual. Is joining the forum the ONLY thing he's done internet wise? Doubt it. Bit of a major conclusion he leapt to.

No spam in my inbox, unless you include the Nigerian with an improbable name who still insists he has US$50 million with my name on it, if only he had my bank account details....

Exactly the same as the others . Very strange - I suppose the complaint itself could not be spam ??

No, Kevin is not a spammer. He has recently posted a question about Dynamo's and his IP address tracks back t his stated location in Maryland.

Nor here. No more than usual anyway.
I think that 50 million is mine actually Chris. The nice man seems so pleased to have finally found me....
