It’s been brought to my attention that some accounts on the site have been spam messaging users. The messages usually start something like this
i saw your profile and became interested in you, my name is Marian i am working with united nation, i will like to have a friend like you,
i have something to share with you, please email me through ([email protected]) for more information about me, i will check my mail to know if you have contacted me because i am working at the moment”
This is a known scam where the next stage after you contact the scammer, they will hope that you have at sometime watched pornography and will then try to convince you that they have footage recorded from your computers webcam or mobile device front facing camera. They will then say they have recorded you having the fun times and will try to blackmail you into sending them cryptocurrency. Obviously, if you’ve never watched any adult entertainment, you will know this is a scam, but for some they can easily fall for this and that’s when these people make their money. They basically use a script, and pump it out to as many people as they can, hoping to get some hits somewhere along the line.
How do I know this? A quick google search brings plentiful results regarding these kind of scams.
I will delete these accounts from the site and keep my eyes open for any more of these accounts sending messages. PLEASE REMEMBER, if in doubt about anything, just ask me, pop me a message, it’s what I’m here for. We will never ask you for anything in return for using this site. not crypto, not money, not passwords or any other sensitive information.
Thanks to Nik UK bringing this to my attention so quickly!
