We have recently had a few spammers sending links to online pharmacies through PMs. Please report these so that we can prevent them from spamming the board.

I haven't had any of these PMs but ever since I joined this site I get a lot of junk mail from these pharmacies for enhancements and 'special' meds (lol) in my junk email box - usually one or two right after I leave the site. It doesn't really bother me I suppose because I just delete them but what would cause this to happen. I've never had this junk mail before I joined SAS.

And just out of curiosity... I think it is funny - do you think anyone really gets this junk mail, opens it and things wow - heck yeah - I'm gonna order some of that from an unknown source and give them my debit card number and take the risk of actually using this stuff.

Are there really people out there like that?

Guilty, but only once:hide

caflme,
It is unlikely that Email spammers got your Email address from the board.

I match that appreciation! We need to keep on top of this and need your help to do so.

If you got a PM from a user named Ballsy, he's banned - go ahead and delete the PM.
I don't mean to call out a username like this, but he continued to send PMs after I banned him and he sent out a bunch.

This way, you won't have to report this guy's messages.

I got one from "InToTheWind". At first I thought how bizarre it was for someone I've not spoken with or seen around the board to wish to recommend me my so called "wonder drug" without a proper prescription for it, I later thought spam & deleted the message

This is the first time I've received anything like this here, I'll report if it happens again

I always love it when some random stranger thinks Xanax is 'right up my alley'. Thanks for removing them.

"FreeDriverFor" is most likely a spammer. His single post seems to be a link to somewhere that I'm hesitant to even click on.

Yep, he is indeed a spammer, and I checked him out in the spammer database (I'm a moderator elsewhere and use that tool extensively) . I sent a PM to Drew about him. As far as the PM spammers go, one way to minimise it would be to limit PM access until they've had a minimum number of posts.

As I said in my reply to you, thank you for your PM.

I've enabled the database on SAS using a vBulletin mod.

Hopefully it'll stop most of these guys. I'd rather not go the minimum post route.
