What Would You Do if a Member Messaged You Asking for Help Finding an Internet Job?

I am not sure if this is a violation of the guidelines or if I am just being too picky. It seems spamish since I don't know this person except for one comment they made on one of my posts. Would you report this to @GoAskAlice or just ignore it? I am sure I have never given any indication I am an employment agency or that I have Internet job connections.

I probably would report it right away, although I see it is not necessarily a violation. I had someone who wanted me to sponsor him to come to the US and help him find a job. It was stalking, I blocked and reported him. He is still here, but I do not deal with him.

You are not alone. I received plenty of messages coming from members here and I just told them to be active here and they will earn. And I don't think it is a violation unless they ask you in the comment section. It is better to tell them nicely too or ignore them.

@BelleStarr Perhaps wanted to know if you had any pointers or tips. I have shared with other members if they asked what I used to earn. But with ones I speak to regularly. Though, I was recently asked if I could purchase a membership for someone if they paid me via PayPal since they needed a verified PayPal account. I don't even communicate with this person at all, if I do once or twice. Now that was a strange encounter!
