False "Admin" Messages
Posted 1/10/09
Yesterday i got two spam messages. One was offering free ring tones and had a tinyurl.com link in it; the other advertising that new Opra diet, also with a link. The most disturbing thing was that these messages claimed to be from "Crunchyroll" or the admin.

Obviously they aren't. Shinji is a smart guy who wouldn't allow private message advertisement campaigns. I'm sure he will deal swift justice to all those who would dare use his name to advertise their products, therefore, i reported both as spam.



So my questions are: Has anyone else received messages like these recently? How long ago did it start and how often has it happened?

yeah i got one in my inbox this morning. i was going to click on the link but decided not to since a complimentary ring tone sounded really fishy.

meh don't think so cause there are idiots who spammed my whole inbox =_=

Hmm, how annoying. Sounds like a few people have gotten the same one just this morning, but i wonder if this is fairly new in general. I don't recall ever having this happen before and i've been on CR for a little over a year.

i never get spam mail...lol.

anyway, yes it's fake. don't even open it...

I had 3 of them in my inbox today. I recommed everyone just marks them as spam so someone can do something about it.
