This person is now long gone. Thanks for the heads up! In the future, just send me a private message though.

He has also started a discussion where he is asking money for his studies because he has been scammed. He says that he is in USA, but the email address he gives is a free address in India...

He only wanted $40 or $50. Am I the only one who got the message? Why does he think I am rich?

last may 21, owlwings wrote a very helpful post about how to deal with spammers that send you unsolicited/annoying messages through private messaging. here is the link: i never receive spam messages here because 1. i don't automatically follow everyone that follows me and 2. i changed my settings to only those that i follow can send me private messages.
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,...

Some spam is floating around but not too much. He better figure out a way to come up with the rent.

He is gone from here so we will never know. I can't decide if he is all con artist or if he really needs help.

I am seeing his comments on posts as I am around this evening. I reported it. He may really need the money, but to spam others is a no-no.

Yeah, I just found it in most recent comments. I feel sorry for the guy but a lot of people need money. Who knows if it is true. He says we are treating him like an animal. Sheesh!

@akalinus He joined a month ago, and these are his first posts. He's a damn scammer is all.

His account is no longer there. Unfortunately, deleting a user doesn't remove any messages he sent from your inbox. I suggest that you just delete them.

He got his 15 minutes of fame, though. I wonder if anyone sent him any money.

Wow that is crazy! That is good you are reporting him, I did not encounter this spam guy.

This is annoying. Why does he think it's OK, I wonder, to ask for rent on MyLot? Or ask for any type of "donation"....How strange. I haven't gotten this message yet, maybe he has already been banned.
