Boring scammers


#1

Don’t know about you but last months I’ve been reporting and blocking at least 2 scammers daily. Always the same story, senior developers from ******* , ■■■■■ enthusiasts and others. It’s really getting annoying.

Mod Note: Country/region reference removed.

Really? I’ve never had to deal with that. How are you getting the spam? Private message via seller profile?


#3

Yes, I just reported and blocked one some mintues ago, apparently from **************. It usually starts like " hello, I have a great business proposition" or something, well it’s easy to spot them, but why do they even bother, I have no clue.

Mod Note: Country/region reference removed.

For every person capable of spotting a scammer a mile away, there’s two people who can not.


#5

I guess you are right so I hope new sellers will read it and take caution.
They usually send a doc file after the first message, with their credentials, mail etc to contact you outside… Then you know what to do lol.

Posts that have content or links that put individual regions or sellers from specific regions in a negative light may be pulled for review, edited or removed. Be careful if making any post that may make users uncomfortable due the mention of specific cities/states/provinces/countries/continents/regions or ethnic groups. Due to potential negative repercussions by or for buyers and sellers, the moderation team is taking a more cautious approach to posts with content related to any individual country/region or sellers from any specific country/region.

The above is from the forum rules: Forum Rules + Do's and Dont's

Yes, I understand that. They are all new profiles and they may be from whatever region or country, they may use proxies, it was not my intention to target any area of course. I’m glad it’s edited though. Kind regards.

Just count yourself lucky that your profile & gigs are exposed enough for people to find you, even if they are scammers.
