Hey Ken, believe it or not. I just read a profile like that about 20 minutes ago, but I didn't notice who it was from.

Hello Ken,

I am not sure what this means people becomes members and pay to scam? Aren’t they filtered at all? Like they have to be real people to sign up?

I noticed people without much on their their bio, and I always wonder why?

What do they gain I following other members?

Thank you for th alert. I will check all those that I did follow and they never follow me back. And will not follow those that do not have a bio.

Kind regards,

Ana

If someone follows me, I reciprocate most of the time. Because, it's the right thing to do.

But, I will, most likely, not follow them back if:


They have little or no profile of substance on their profile page.

OR

They have been a WA member for only a few short months and are already indiscriminately following 5 times the number of members that I follow (and, I've been with WA for over 2 years).


Believe it or not, I've seen newbies who have been a member for less than a month - and they are already following 10,000+ members!

I never follow anybody who does not have a profile of themselves and at least a couple of lines of introduction. That doesn't guarantee they're genuine, but I'd say it's at least 95%.

yeah... Those profiles with default pictures and weird an unintelligible names, sure do look questionable, right?

I wonder what's going on, because sometimes I think if there are members that are here but have no actual desire to take proper action if they're going to achieve anything!

Let them be Ken,

You got better things to think about like the reasons why you're a WA Ambassador.

Or that you have a successful business!

Scammers don't really gain anything from here anyway if they're going to be posting weird stuff, so let them clear themselves up!

Have a great Monday

Thanks Ken Twack just did a post on these as well and they have been reported. This is a premium members just like last time and creates starter accounts all with the same profile message as you stated.
Thanks for keeping an eye out this is starting to get out of hand over the last few months

Yep this is the same style as the last one I reported one is premium then with their bots created starter members with the same profile I am pretty sure the profile is the same as last time.
The main thing is we are on to it and to report it to Kyle or Carson.

Nice find Ken, the more we can raise awareness the quicker they can be eradicated.
There's a leader this time:SUMAIYARAHMA.
It's followers are nearly all like the ones you found.
Just sent a flare up this morning also. You're on it.

Me either Sandy. Maybe they take it a step further and set up an account and attract the 50c. Otherwise just mischief.
