    Anyone else getting these?

    I've got 3 this week:

    The common factors, besides the obvious nonsense short messages is that the 3 of them come from Girl names of deleted profiles (non-clickable)


    This intrigues me so much because everytime I see some kind of spam or etc I think blackhat and I always do some reverse engenieering, and find out how the spammer is making money (analyze the method :cool: )

    Anyone else in BHW getting these? whats the method/purpose behind?

    I haven't been getting them but I can speculate on their purpose. Obviously they are fake accounts, I don't really have to state that. It's almost 100% chance that it is a bot sending those messages in hopes that guys will see the picture, and be intrigued enough to add them as a friend. It's the picture that most guys will care about, not the message itself.

    It would seem the accounts get banned very quickly, and thats why they show up as deleted profiles.

    So the purpose is merely account creation/adding friends.
