If anyone spots any strange new names that are spamming, I found 2 this morning, that were for a handbag sales and offshore banking. One was in 3 forums, the other only one forum. They both contained links that were not visible, but keyed to specific words, that would highlight and an underline would appear with the curser . That exposed the link to click on.

If you spot any, please click your report buttom if they are obvious spams. Send any moderator or John a PM. Thank You.

No, not that smart about it, really. I saw this a few weeks ago, and stumbled onto the key words by accident with the curser. I was really scratching my head to make sense out of the post, when it highlighted when the curser hit the word. When I saw these 2, one was obvious with a pictures of the handbag, but you still had to find the link hidden. The banking one, was in the finance forum, and it seemed odd that the 2 new names on one day, both had this same kind of hidden links, as the one a few weeks ago.

Now that I think about it. This happened yesterday, and this morning my McAfee flashed a message it deleted a trojan, so not sure if its related. I had clicked on the links to see what they were. Probably cleaned me out, and I;m broke now. Laugh
