Here we go again - Scam alert

Last Update: March 03, 2018

Just saw this while welcoming a new member to WA. What a deterrent. Please encourage new WA members to ignore whenever you notice it on their profiles.

Not the first thing you want to experience as soon as you sign up to WA.

Is there any way of removing this scammer??
Im sorry you experienced this David. Let's get this person out of our community, he's trying to take advantage of people's good will.

I am not too concerned about me, Aaron. I am more worried about the fact that it was on a new member's profile page. He only signed up today.

Yes!! That's what im worried about. I know that you wouldn't fall for this rediculous claim. I wouldn't want someone new joining and then being taken advantage of, or just thinking WA is not serious. Im with you David.

I believe most are already wary of this though but...
We want this to be removed ASAP and not linger around WA land this long. That should ideally take a few seconds to be investigated after being reported. Maybe WA can give some seasoned Ambassadors to ability/permission to deal with Spam as well.
That would speed things up for them.

Hey David, this joker is going right for the classic Nigerian scam. What a moron! Wow!
Hopefully, the nonsense will pass soon. We have better things to do with our time!

I don't even think that the photo is authentic or the claim of being a barrister... It's just a part of the ploy to deceive.

I think the man from that picture is Amancio Ortega.

Wow that is quite a deceiving spam . Very well crafted it seems so genuine if you disclosed any further details. You are smart to bring it to attention , and we can learn the new form spam can disguise itself as.
