Hello,
I didn't know where to put this, but I figured I should alert everyone, especially the Mods & Admins.
This BS sounds entirely too similar to the Phone calls I get from these Phonies from the other side of our planet.
Can the Forum powers that be, please get rid of this.
No way would I give him my Email !!

Thanks,
Bear

Below this line is what was in my Conversation Box:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • Mr.Samer Azhari: Good Morning

    Please, I'm interested in speaking with you about a business deal I desire to actualize with you. Please to further explore this possibility I would like you to contact me via my email address([email protected]) to give you a brief description of my field of work and the project idea.

    Thank You,
    Mr.Samer Azhari

Add an attempt to list. I had conversations disabled or I would have had the same message for sure. Felt like spam, and not the good kind.

Yeah, I figured the Mods & Admins have always done a Great job In blocking this kind of Crap, so maybe because they're so busy with the new upgrade that this one slipped by.
So I put it out there.
I get sick of the phone calls, and my New "Do Not Call" sign-up didn't take hold yet.
I don't need that stuff here too.

I thought this thread was going to be about actual spam and that you named your smoker the conversation box.

Under the message there is a bell with the word "Report" beside it. Click that.

I got it too, and didn't see it until this AM.
If you guys report it it will be taken care of almost immediately.
There is usually at least one mod or admin on here all the time.
