What is the protocol when you want to flag a personal message for SPAM? It came from a user who created their account on the same day I got the message. It reads:
i am a female, i saw your profile i became so much interested to established a relationship and business partner with you, please kindly contact me on my email address at (email address) for more introduction and my picture.
Did anyone else get a message like this? It looks like spam to me. How do you report a message like this?

The mods are on it, there have been already several threads about the same message today!

Top left is a link for “Support” and I reported the spam I got from Jane3030 there this morning.

We have taken care of both accounts: Jane30 and Jane3030. Please report any other accounts under Support if you receive spam PMs.
Unfortuately, incidents like these do happen and are impossible to prevent. It’s like getting a spam e-mail! All you guys can do is report it to us mods with a link to the account and delete the message. We’re glad to see everyone quick to notify us though so the accounts are blocked. Please keep in mind that this doesn’t mean the “user” will not create another account to do the same. We will try to keep up with any new accounts created for this sole purpose.
Once again, thank you!
ETA: Also think of it as the spam you guys flag for us on the boards! It’s just in PM style. A major nuisance, but nothing too serious.
