Hello,

can someone tell me how we can report these people. This user is clearly a spammer and potentially dangerous. I could not find a ‘report’ button, but their account should be removed. See attached screenshot

That exact same message appeared and was reported last year, but will be using a different account now.  

I have reported a few spammers who start threads, or post replies on various threads.  They are getting cleverer now, instead of random gobbledegook text with links, they start with a sentence that seems to be on topic but doesn't really say anything, then go into their pitch for assignment writing or games with links that may or may not be what they say they are.  

But when I look now, I can't see the button to report either.    It let you send an email to the site administrator, Anthony Scott.  You could do that anyway.  Actually, the Report button opened Mail which I don't use, and I had to copy the address and send an email from my own email app anyway. Email to a.scott@stopmotionanimation.com

Ah, I just scrolled all the way down, and below the dark grey area, in the black border, there are some words on the left and right.  On the right, try clicking "Report an Issue".  I'm pretty sure there was one for spam somewhere, but that should do it.

It's down below the Message Board News Feed. See Watch Out, then click on Notify Me. I'll make it more obvious. Sorry I try to keep up on these spammers, but it's difficult. 

I just moved the Watch Out notice up to the top. Thanks for reporting.

Looks like they are targeting individuals, be careful people!

I just got sucked in too. 

I received the same message

This person is fishing for people to help her get a 5 million dollar inheritance. someone should remove her from this site. 

I suspended this offender last Friday.
