    My apologies if this is in the wrong part of the forums. But has anyone else gotten spam messages from a user lately? I’ve twice received this message:

    Hello I am (name withheld),
    I guess you will not surprise to receive my mail? i saw your profile and it
    sound well.I will like us to exchange good relationship.I am (name withheld)
    by name,No kid and never marry.from here you can contact me at this
    email address (address withheld) so that i can send you my
    pictures and also tell you more about myself,have a nice day
    and i am waiting to hear from you soonest,
    Remember the distance or colour does not matter but love and concern matters alot in life
    (address withheld)
    Yours
    (name withheld)

    Obviously I’ve censored some things just in case someone’s account got hijacked (though it seems unlikely). Wasn’t sure if I was the only one getting this…

    This was reported by several people this morning. The user in question has already had their account suspended.

    @keithcollantine The user dinaliton000 looks very spammer-ish too.
