Spam on SP?

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

[SECOND EDIT: SP replied quickly to my report, saying one of the coaches had already deactivated this person's account. Apparently I wasn't the only one to get her e-mail. Glad she's gone (assuming JLOVE55/Jennifer is really a "she").

[EDIT: Thanks, all. As some of you suggested, I reported the e-mail to SparkPeople. There's probably nothing they can do about it, but at least they know.]

Anyone else get something like this? I searched for JLOVE55 and got no results.

JLOVE55 has just commented on your Feed Action CELIAMINER Where did the weekend go?!


JLOVE55 said 'Hello my dear My name is Jennifer I come across your profile be come interested in you here is my email address Remember distance or color does not me matter but love matters a lot in life and i will soon send you my pictures and tell you more about me am waiting for your reply to my email ( [username masked by me] )'

    I got something similar awhile back and reported it exactly as you did. I've not be contacted since. There are so many sites where that is the main goal, why do they bother us here?

    That is really odd. I've gotten spam as blog comments with a username posting a link about a product they are selling or something they want me to read about. Usually they do it to multiple others and by the time I see it and go to look at their page, they are no longer members!

I got something like that a while back
It said something like I have something for you, here is my email, please contact me
I never did, if it was from a Sparker why give an outside email?

Didnt really think anything about it, just weird! Maybe a virus.
