  • Spam botts keep getting smarter and smarter.

    Seems its getting worse for everyone as its a constant battle to keep these things out of our system.

    Now it seems, new users are signing up ever other day and whats hard to understand is that it seems if someone has been able to feed phone books to the spam botts.

    Before Any of the new registrations even get to me, our system sends a Link for them to Click on meaning they have to have a Valid email address.
    Notice the email address is not even close to the user name. I get this one allot too.

    I have to check each one of them as we get things like this.
    All these fields are Mandatory, they Have to be filled in.

    This one, the zip code is wrong ( a mistake made Allot!)

    Well, poop.....I already deleted the other examples....
    Anyway,some of them are Totally Valid looking and I have even taken the time to Call some of these people that looks valid that happen to be in Washington only get a, Huh, Who are you ?
    I explain that some how there information was used to try to register on our Forum.
    Most of the numbers I call are bogus or fax machines, been disconnected our just random phone numbers with the proper area code.

    When they started talking to me as I was the one that hijacked there information, I just quit calling and checking, I just delete them as the email is not even close.

    SO, if you are reading this and have tried to Register to become a member, Email me and I will get you setup.

    Found another example. I got 5 of these today.
