Spammers and how to deal with them

If you receive a private message from what you suspect is a spammer, please report the message and the moderators will follow up on it and will ban the spammer if verified. The latest one to be banned was MAALI397.

Once again it is one of those things that follows the adage "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is".

So keep an eye out for PM's similar to:


"Thank you for your time. I am Ella from a big company. We specialize in high quality OBD2/EOBD Scanners that allow users to diagnose their automobiles easily. I am reaching out to you on the possibility of getting an editorial review for our featured Auto Code Scanner on this forum.

Me, too. I have a good scanner and don't need two anyway.
They should say they're from Nigeria, that might work better...

But, but, but ... she's from a "big company!"
Nevermind that she doesn't NAME it.


Also she said "There is always a product to impress your deeply."

I am pretty sure I do NOT want her to impress MY deeply.
