DP keyword team spam!!!

    Why is DP sending me spam? I am disgusted that DP is taking the list of members and sending them spam from the "keywords team" and requesting payment from paypal for a list of keywords. Pathetic. Your keyword team needs to be banned from DP and don't think of starting a new one.

    Here's the email:

    Arun Chandran (hifiweb@gmail.com) would like to be paid through PayPal.
    Money Request Details
    Amount: $14.95 USD
    Event Date: Jan. 9, 2005

    What makes you think it's from us? It's from a member here that was already banned (twice). Your best option would be to turn off the ability for other members to email you.

    Because he says it's a deal from DP and the Keyword Team. The utter gall of demanding payment through paypal is staggering.

    Report him to his host for spamming; report him to yahoo because you "thought the spam came from them" see if that does anything.

    Put his link on a webpage with Spammer as the anchor text.....

    but don't blame dp.

    I just got an e-mail from paypal asking for $14.95 USD.

    Went to paypal logged in and reported a spam/fraud titled "spam request for money" with the web site and full source of e-mail.

    Hope fully paypal will ban them or worse. :mad:

    Paypal is unlikely to act on 1 report so I urge others to do the same.

    I wouldn't say I was crying like a baby, but when I read the content of my e-mail from this jerk, I was livid. I have never had one with "money request details", and implying that I owe money, neckie b@st@rd!!

    It must say that I realised it was a spammer, so no hard feeling to DP, and having run a forum on seahorses, we used to get this crap all the time and no-one knew we even existed!!!
