Help - WA My Safe Space Is Being Invaded!

Last Update: March 03, 2018

Wealthy Affiliate has until yesterday been such a safe space for me, a place where I can trust not to be harassed and a place that is spam and scam free.

However it has now become clear that WA is not always going to be free from the BS of the outside world. No matter what unsavory characters will find their way into all corners of the world. This is just a sad fact of life.

This does NOT make WA a bad place it just means that we must all as a community stick together and give these people that want to scam and con others no room to breathe.

If you find something suspicious here please report it and let Kyle know as soon as possible so that he can deal with it his side.

I'm sure that Kyle is going to have a lot on his hands, and I don't envy him having to sort out these things... so let's all stand together and help him to become aware when there are problems. There is a report function for all comments, for all private messages and for all live chat messages - please use this when you see something!

Hi Lynne, sadly this is certainly becoming a contemporary reality, having to deal with such negative online issues whenever they appear. Thank you for the links you have provided... possibly naively, I'm hoping that they won't need to be used too often at WA!

I hope so too! But hey Carson has messaged me to sort out the guy hitting on me and so many other women. I knew that they would sort it out as soon as possible. Got to love this place and the support :)

I have always found WA to be one of the most supportive, caring work environments I have worked in! The community, Kyle, Carson and their team make this possibly one of the safest online educational establishments to learn with, so I'm certainly staying here as long as I am able! Sue :)

Hi again Lynne,
I just read a couple of blogs about this too. Unbelievable. Glad you have brought the posts all to the one place. I hadn't seen the referral stealing one yet so now I know who to watch out for.

Yeah it is very sad! But I guess with this platform growing the bad elements will also increase.

I think the news is circulating quite fast because my inbox has been full of messages and I just joined 25 January. I'm so happy to be in a community that takes these things seriously, and even me (as a newbie) gets the memos right away. Thanks for lighting a fire on these issues!

We've had FIERCE winds the past couple days.....a big storm on the east coast of the US. At least it wasn't snow for me. In any case, perhaps it's stirred up all the evil in WA (plus the full moon). What a combo right? LOL
