Criminal spam   Administrative Issues

Hi all.

Usually I just delete spam and report the offender.

However I'm getting advertising for forged passports and other documents.  This is serious stuff.

I need to know if you have anyone to pass these along to for investigation.

If not, do you think it would be prudent to contact someone about this?

I have quarantined the offending post in my Staff folder for now.

Please advise.

Cheers,

Jenifer

You can forward the message to law enforcement if you wish. We actually get that sort of thing being advertised all the time by spammers, so I don't know if it will do much good.

I've never seen spam like this before.

Especially given they are so open and include contact details.

I forwarded one, I don't need to do it again.  I just wanted to know what your policies are on the more serious stuff.

Cheers,

Jenifer

Just ignore them and block the sender, usually a spammer.

That is all you can do. Send it to TOS and then delete.
