Ever had this happen, you accept someone into your friend's list and then they immediately spam you with money making deals?? I hate this, it truly irritates and makes me want to BROADCAST his name to all of myLot so they know to BEWARE of this guy, what do you do? ever had this happen to you? or is it just me??

It's only happened to me once. That person is still on my friends list. I just sent a note that I wasn't on myLot to earn money, just to enjoy the discussions. They understood and apologized, so they are still on my friends list. I'm sure many newbies will try that if they're only here for the money. We just need to set them straight...one way or another.

I deleted them immediately, I did that once and told someone else that I did not enjoy such emails and did not delete them only to have them repeat the emails to me, know on it is an automatic deletion for me. Thanks for sharing

I haven't had this happen yet but I would be getting him out of my friend list if anyone did this to me . Have you tried emailing him and telling him that you are not intersted in all his idea's , maybe he thought it might be something you would be interested in and if you were to ask him to stop , then maybe he would . Best of luck !!

When I read the email I responded to him that I did not appreciate him sending me it and then I deleted him my friend's list. Can you believe after I deleted him he tried to be my friend again, makes you want to scrunitize who is on your friend's list.

I recently had one, who up until last night was a busy bee but not with $$ deals, but then last night she hit with several money deals. I ignored them since I don't have time in the morning to really worry too much beyond clearing out my inbox.

Just irritates me, I am on myLot not for the money (goodness not enough there to be here for that) but for the discussions and the topics

I hate that, too. I am always careful to check a person's profile when they send me a friend request to see if they only post stuff about money-making ideas. If they do, I deny them. I want friend who have at least a few of my same interests so that we can respond to eachother's posts (that's what friends do, right?) If they only post/reply about money sites, they are not likely to want to help me out, they are only trying to build their referrals for those other sites.

That never happened to me. Instead of broadcasting his name, just report the spam to MyLot, and they'll deal with him so we won't have to.

I've had it happen twice, both yesterday, I just delete the ppl as my friends. I personally think this is terrible and should be against the policy, they should get kicked out of myLot for it.

Sounds like the same one I had a week or so ago, even my discussions all he did was promote his money making site. I dropped him as a friend.

I don't know why it unnerves me so much, I guess cause I am here not just for the money but for the discussion and my friends, some people just don't get that, thanks for responding

I think that if they are going to do it. make a Topic about it, if anyone is interested they should reply. thats how most Mylotters do it. they put in in the catorgaries where they should, like moneymakeing websites, or earn money, or internet. you half to use one one those catorgories. Now I under stand what spam is. becsuse I got one yesterday. with about 10 websites. I told him I wasn't interested because I am up to my neck with moneymaking sites.

I have had this happen to me. I always check responses that a person gave, discussions that they started, and best responses that they have received beofre accepting, but some still get through. I have onlyhad this happen once and there was nothing to indicate that this person would do this. When I got the stupid email, I just replied back and told them that I did not appreciate it, and I am not interested in getting any money making deals through mylot and if he continued I would delete him as a friend. This particular guy was very understanding and apologized and I haven't gotten another one yet. If the person doesn't listen to me then I would delete them as a friend.

Oh, this has happened to me. I've had at least two or three people add me to their friends and then not long after, they spammed me with their stupid scam sites. I don't remember what I did, but I very possibly deleted the "friends". Either that or I just ignored the messages and went about my day on myLot.

It happened to me once yesterday. The person sent me an email asking me to join some group. I just ignored it. I will remove them from my friends list.

Oh, I've had it happen several times, I just ignore it. I accept just about everyone that requests and so I know I'm more apt to get these types of offers...hey, maybe someday I'll come across one that is really legit and be rich...who knows ;-) Have a good day!
