Recent Spammer in private messages
 
It has been brought to my attention that a spammer named jay367jay or something used the PM system to spam all of you regarding a clickbank product.

I've had 3 people tell me about it, he has been deleted. Please stop sending me PM's and emails about it. I've got it.

I'm surprised vBulletin doesn't have some sort of protection against that sort of stuff.

lylemcd 02-18-2009 07:20 PM

Pray tell how would that work.

Well, you could do it many ways. Limit the number of people you can send the message to (assuming it was sent to multiple recipients). Limit the number of messages a person can send in a given period of time. Require a CAPTCHA for each message. Lots of ways to prevent automation.

I think you should let 'em know

You didn't get it*? I'll forward mine to you if you need it. ;)

*I find it a little odd that someone who almost never posts on either board got it, and you didn't.

Yep - Lady_Admin. Weak attempt. Like we don't know who runs this joint.

LYLE - suggestion - disable PM permissions until a user has some small amount of posts, like 5 or 10. That at least prevents those from signing up to PM-spam us without dropping a single post.

kthxbai. :)

I got this as well :mad:

lylemcd 01-15-2010 09:53 AM

Fireproof's suggestion will not work as some new signups pm me when they don't get the verification email. so I can't turn off the system completely.

Kami 01-16-2010 01:03 PM

Try recaptcha or this mod (I would put my bet on recaptcha).

DanceDiva 01-17-2010 12:00 AM

Okay.

GooDFriend got missed.

They don't get missed. They get gotten to. Eventually. Being Shania Twain's new boyfriend is time consuming :)

Acneman 01-24-2010 07:28 AM

The 2nd post in this thread is interesting. Also the first post but it sounds like you do some of those already

lylemcd 01-24-2010 10:20 AM

All of which I'm currently doing except for not allowing free email accounts but thanks. You might note that currently the only spam is coming through the PM channel, none of it is showing up on board.

there's the latest guy

NoRJDont 01-27-2010 04:26 AM

I got one from MannInBlackk. Promised I could "find a report about your computer's security and solve every problem with it" if I just.....click the link.

Why is it when someone says 'click the link' I'm reminded of grandpa telling me 'pull my finger'? Maybe because either would cause something bad to happen?

Hey ForumTeam, what kind of important message do you have for US ?

lylemcd 02-07-2010 11:38 AM

Got him, thank you. I also have set Admin,admin,Forum,forum as usernames that can't be used since that seems to be the current approach to scamming people.

Rogue Mossad agents have been sent to visit him. You will not hear from him again.
