    There seems to be an influx of accounts lately, which make posts like PM me, contact me or asking for Skype info. They almost don't make any other posts.

    I cannot get arsed to report this many accounts one-by-one hence opening this thread. They obviously belong to the same spammer.
    He tries to circumvent the pm limitation and he figured out, that once someone messages a user with less than 15 posts, the recipient will be able to reply, so he tries to "provoke" a private message or bring the discussion to Skype.

    The accounts in question:
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/boybawang9384.1016744/
    https://www.blackhatworld.com/members/mahabangbuto.1003179/

    Take a look at the posting history. Very suspicious multiple similar posts between accounts. Possible incoming PM solicitation/Skype spam.

    Just by looking at the usernames, there's a recognizable pattern with most of them. Most accounts were created in Nov.
    These are just a few i noticed, i guess there are/will be more.

    By the time i finished writing my post , these were already disabled:

    Mods are on it already, but in case if they miss a few, i just put this up here.

    Why not set up a filter with words you cant post until xx posts are made?

    That would be easier :)

    Ahhh...got it. I have also come across many such messages....another blackhat technique and a select few may fall for it. If its working in this forum it will definitely work in other niche forums ;)

    Because no matter how many warnings people put out there NOT TO GO ON SKYPE with these idiots, people still do so and then end up getting screwed over.

    Good job @BassTrackerBoats and the other mods!
