Question on comments: "profile on another site"

I've had a couple of comments on stories that portend to be someone looking for a hookup. They say they are looking for a someone to message them and that they have a link on another site, and provide a link.

I tested a link on a "safe" computer (doesn't hold anything someone could use), and it goes to some odd site. I backed out.

So the link pretends to go to some dating/hook-up site, but is obviously designed to drag people into some trap.

So I'm wondering, is anyone else seeing this? I think I've had 2. I deleted both.

I'm not sure there is anything the admins can do for this, as it seems that people are manually going in and posting comments, so they would have to identify the accounts and restrict them, and they would just go on to another ID.

This sort of stuff happens. There is a report icon bottom left of every post and the mods do, sooner or later and generally sooner, erase them. Or you can do what you did.

We get those things all the time. Anyone over the age of twelve should already know not to follow those links. Just don't. Report them to the site admins.

If you get spam through PMs just forward it to Laurel, with SPAM in the subject heading, and then delete it. She'll shut down the account and purge from everyone's mailboxes.

If you get it in the story comments report it, then delete it. Again, the site will shut down the spammer's account and run block deletes.

Yep. Never click the links. Just report.

I'm wondering why anyone would pursue this sort of thing at all.

Lonely old man, three sheets to the wind, left hand stopped feeling like someone else long ago, might just be tempted enough to see what it’s about. These sort of scams only need you to visit the site and then you’re infected with a “drive by” virus. Once infected, the pc/laptop/device is theirs to peruse. After that it’s up to you to find out what damage they did.
