This arrived today 24th June 2017 sometime between 1 a.m. this morning and 8 am. Descendants name is. Shenhai1. There are four posts in either the script for Korea or Japanese at a guess


Scattered throughout this script are some words DHL what I think is a telephone number and 100% as an example.
This message is under the group general chat
.
I thought I should report it as a possible scam.
Regards Helen

I'm getting spam in Latest Posts from lolakolax every few seconds. Can you not reject all such messages as it makes this forum useless. Thanks

Iolakolax are still posting every few seconds. They are posting to Genealogy Chat forum so it also shows up in Latest. It virtually destroys the happy experience this site gave users. I cannot see anyway that I as a user can block them so can you do thar? Thanks

Hello everyone,

Apologies for the higher than usual volume of spam messages, and for the disruption to your user experience. Unfortunately we had several spam accounts getting past our usual defences, and since it happened over the weekend I wasn't able to catch it straight away. I've now blocked all the accounts and deleted their posts, but I will continue monitoring the situation in case they come back. Thank you to everyone who reported the issue.
