"Hello my dear,

I have important reasons to request your interest for a Serious Relationship, i will be happy if you can send me email at (ciara.sands@yahoo.com) so that i can easily explain to you more about me and send you my picture because I have something very Important to tell you.
Your New Friend

That's good. You're not the only one who got that same message from her.

Hmm, 8/21 and this is still happening?

 

The moderation team aren't dumb, they are fully aware i'm sure, as in my experience they watch the forums pretty closely and see almost everything that's posted. I'm sure they are on top of it.

 

As far as why this user hasn't been banned, no clue, but I'm sure there's a good explanation.

Hey there...

 

Sorry for the inconvenience, but since there's no way to report PMs (it's a privacy thing), we don't really know when the spammer strikes! 

 

The best thing to do would be to send one of the Mods a PM (or PSForumMods) and we can look into it.

 

Thanks!

edit - this user is making alts that's why you're seeing them pop up again and again.
