We try to all in our powers to keep spammers (potential scammers) out, some of you has accepted friendship from a profile called ‘hariatta hester’ that is a spamming profile, ‘she’ will write you and say ‘she’ works with UN and has some important info to share, then ‘she’ will ask for your personal details. Repport and delete. If you get that, from hariatta hester or any other profile here. We are here for our studies, not to get scammed. I will delete any spammer as soon as I know.
Thank you all,
Have a great day.

There is a lot of traffic to the site at the moment. Please be aware if you get a weird friend request or a “Hello Darling…” mail with “interesting” suggestions. Do not send them a mail to an email address, if you feel like answering (your reply will eventually get deleted) then answer the message only.
The purpose of getting you to write emails is harvesting email addresses that are in use, for sale.
We have implemented “I am not a robot” but some of the attackers will circumvent that.July 29, 2019 at 7:07 pm #9239Roberto BarataModerator

Another spam alert from “Maasai Moran”. I received 5 messages in 20 minutes from this person.
Lee AnneApril 14, 2020 at 6:51 am #11879
Yes, this night (GMT) we had our worst spam attack ever. It was not a hacker attack, but spam. Maasai Moran had time to send 3,403 messages in the span of 3 hours. I have never seen anything like it. The profile gives a facebook address, and I have reported the profile as “fake” to facebook.
If anyone has the time to do the same, please do so, as Facebook only reacts if many people do the same. The profile:
The profile says “she” is from Baton Rouge, but live in Benin? Naaa, I don’t think so 😉
Enjoy your days, where ever you are. And thank you for reporting. Maasai Moran is gone 🙂

John, what is the best way to report spam when we receive it?
Lee AnneAugust 13, 2020 at 8:26 am #14438
Hi Lee Ann,
This forum is a great way actually. The latest spammer from this night (GMT) Trista Abuzer (interesting name to choose when you are an internet abuser 😀 ) Send out 396 spam messages before we caught up to “her” in those cases the Admin Team are also getting spam, and they will be gone before we read the forum.
But the Admin Team is subscribed to this forum, new messages here we see 🙂
Have a great day.
