    In the past two days, I have received messages from two different probationary members.The first one seemed like someone was trying to point me towards a turbo I am looking for in a wanted ad.

    So I sent the email to the address provided in the PM. I got back an obvious scam email stating they had a new "Dsmtuners hx40". Which was the subject line of the email I sent. LOL. They included a picture (probably just from google images) of a HX40 turbo with 67mm billet wheel (like what Turbo Lab sells)

    So no big deal, figured I would report the probationary member and forget all about it.

    BUT this morning, I get another probationary member telling me to email his friend who has a hx40 for sale. Obviously I wont be sending any emails to the second address, but I it is getting a little ridiculous.

    So, does DSMtuners have any plans for combating this type of issue? Has this been commonplace on the forums?

    This is new.... forward me any usernames who send PMs like this. That's the only way we'll be able to combat it, is with help from you guys reporting it to me. I'd rather keep it in PMs though in order to not scare them into creating new accounts.

    He can block their account, but reporting their comments and messages only puts it up for moderator review, which can lead to deletion but not an account block. Also a pm would seem to be faster and more efficient, or I would think so. Also, if people use this site from public place then multiple could have the same IP address, so blocking it could block more than one person. Just a little info I thought of... :)

    There are a few things I can do, which I'll probably not share publicly. Just PM me any suspicious users who appear to be doing stuff like this.
