I just now got another spam message from a different user. But guess what? They were both advertising IQ. I had thought that the one in the morning has been banned. Did they return with a new username and new account? Here check this out: **********SPAM MESSAGE*********** How I Made $2.365,98 in 26 Days........blah blah blah........A FREE Service Click This Link in Your Browser! Blah blah blah........ I already reported them. I request whoever receives them please report them. Copy and paste them and forward them to Admin. ASAP As @OwlWings said Someone maybe more vulnerable than you. Report them and save someone falling victim to such things. Be a responsible member of the site too! For detail instructions on "How to deal with spammers".

Recently there has been an incident where a person joined MyLot in order to spam a number of members by sending PMs to them and without posting any discussion,...

@Drososphila I would have if the decimal was in right place. Just kidding! The message say they made $ 2.365,98 in 26 days. Note the position of the decimal. It means $ 2. Well, I can make a dollar in one day if I put some effort. That means $ 2 dollars in two days for me. I think I have the best deal already. Like you had pointed out in your post, It's the same lack of IQ here. They actually meant to say $ 2,365.98. They swapped the decimal and comma. That changed the whole amount from $ 2366 (approx) to $ 2. Idiots!

It is such a waste of time for spammers to come to this site. It will not work. The staff here is always so quick to put a stop to the spammers. I received the PM as well.

It is a new spam strategy : they join just to post one spam message, so blocking them does not help, and pm the message to Alex will just make of Alex the most spammed member. If it continues, I will select for Message Preference on my Settings "Only those I follow can message me" and it will definitely stop this. For the moment any member can message me.

@topffer But those spammers shouldn't have to be able to govern our decisions. Why should we change our message settings because of them? And yeah, Alex is in the thick with receiving so many messages. But it's also part of his job.

@Daljinder Alex might miss more important pm if he has to read hundreds of pm complaining against the same spam message. I agree that spammers have not to force us to use this option. It would be better to forbid to any newcomer with no activity to send PMs. Or less than (100) discussions/comments/responses...

@Daljinder Good on you for reporting them. I hate spammers. I don't even be nice anymore. I used to be all like "Sorry not interested." Now I just report and if they bug me even further, my fingers may accidentally type out some curse words.

I've not received any spam messages. Are they just targeting certain people? Usually I hate missing out, but this time I am happy to be off their list.

@Orson_Kart Actually most of us have gotten those messages. They would have sent you too but by reporting it they got banned before they had the chance. It was like they came, signed up, and starting sending messages one after the other. They showed no other activity in their profiles.

@just4him It is good practice to report them. I worry some gullible person may fall victim to it. There are several on this site that are struggling for money and some are desperate. Desperation can sometime lead to stupidity. That is why it is important to report them and had them banned as soon as we can. If it was just a matter of protecting the site, I would have deleted them too.
