I had just been hit with a wave of phishing emails all pointing to google."insertsomethinghere".  They were all from new accounts and were labelled my thoughts, or opinions. I dont see a report button of users pages and sorry to say I am too lazy and busy to go back and recover the names as I have deleted the emails/pm's. But I just wanted to report it to save some newbie a headache. If this persists maybe add info to this thread if anything can be done. It would be annoying if this becomes a regular occurrence.

I just posted a thread about this as well, I got 5 pms all from brand new accounts just today. It has to be a wave of bots creating accounts and sending out these pms. They must have found a way to bypass the sign up captchas in order to make so many accounts and pm everyone.

I've been nuking them since they started spamming. It would be helpful to use the Report To Admin button in the PM's bottom right.

Yessir, did that and I appreciate you guys taking it seriously.  It's annoying, but fortunately
it's the first (and hopefully last) time it's happened.  It ought to be obvious, but no one should
click on those links.  Thanks, brother.

Yea I just got the same thing, 19 message in total sent to me within a few minutes all from newbie account with zero post activity. seems there's an influx of phishing scams, i highly urge anyone who gets these to delete the message and/or report the users. Ive personally opted out of reporting them as there's probably a huge amount of people sending in reports and im not trying to jam the mods inbox.
