I just deleted 4 postings, which had similar ads...all new users, with 0 postings before.

I will try to filter all out, but maybe can't see them all.

The scammers are trying to enter kiteforum...but since I check every new user I can eliminate most of them.

But if one slips thru, please report!

Just make sure before paying anything, to have a live proof of the person with the gear!

Great work Toby and you have to stay ahead of them. I saw them ruin another forum so bad they took it down and lost all the historical posts when they started back up.

Almost every time I log in lately I see "You exceeded the maximum allowed number of login attempts." and I have to verify that I am not a robot. Someone is trying to hijack my logon credentials and access the forum, probably to scam the forum in some way. Anyone else noticed this?
