Spammers Are Getting More Clever
« on: May 20, 2020, 06:10:37 PM »
Every day we have a couple new accounts that SPAM the forums, which is why posts from new accounts go into a moderation queue.

But these guys are getting better!

Usually I can decide if something is SPAM in less than a second. But this one took longer:



I wonder what that portends for phishing scams?
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

Lol. Pretty cool. Weird that it was tuned to be more attuned to Jewish topics of interest, but struggling in other areas. What is the deal with 2g/3g? That's a good decade or 2 behind us.

Why don't you try and let us know?
I'm afraid to check the website risking to go back to the 2G era...

Normal site. Seems that they retrieve lost funds... Not sure it's a legit site or scam. Google was no help. They actually bring up the site.
You can say what you think when you think what you say.
