[MOD] SimplyAddGallery - Spam? Phishing or what?
« on: September 05, 2005, 07:36:42 PM »
Hi, I have received an email through this board from a member 'vasasha' whom I do not know.
I contains a link to a supposed new MOD called SimplyAddGallery.
There is a link to a 'demo' with a demo admin and if you login it shows the following 'control panel'



However, the link to the supposed demo-gallery is a buy now-link.
I did not click on it because I am afraid it could be some kind of phishing thing.
Is it only me or is this a mass email?

Here is the thread where they are discussing about this Mod:
http://www.4homepages.de/forum/index.php?topic=9402.0

I got 2 emails and 2 Private Messages. I was offended because to me they are nothing but SPAM. Hopefully someone will look into this. Thanks.

I received two PMs and two e-mails as well.

I really don't mind being messaged for normal reasons, but if I want a mod, I'll find it myself -- thanks.  This seems like a case of phishing to me.

I get yesterday and today a PM from this spammer.
Please block this Phishing  Spammer or should we send him our new "Phishing Bank Mails" ?

This board,s aministrator should sort out this spamming problem to prevent such scum from operating and lowering the tone of the forum.
I for one object most strongly to this type of exploitation of the members data base.
I did reply to the spammer's message letting him know what a distasteful piece of rubish he was and sent BCC to Jan but no response as yet.
The Ignore List seems the way to go, by adding every handle he uses.
Jan should be able to get an ip range from the logs that he uses for registration and do some banning and abuse reporting.

Just to add some good late breaking news.
Nicky the admin has locked and will be deleting the thread and its author stinger, vasasha and maybe elvos:
MOD easy addition of gallery up to 99 photos, having filled in only 7 fields
I thank him and hope this will be a leason to spammers who try to abuse this great Forum.

@max.cady
I see that 'stinger' and 'vasasha' have been deleted from the member's list but 'elvos' remains.
Perhaps you might like to PM nicky the admin to delete also this other handle of the spammer. He received spam from vasasha so would be in the mood to ban every handle this specimem uses.
If anyone else that reads this thread knows of any more handles that he uses it might also be a good idea to let admin know.
Lets try and stamp out this spam menace once and for all and any one else that tries it on.

Hello to all!
I am stinger, vasasha and elvos!
First, excuse for the given inconveniences my dispatch.
(I shall not dispatch any more).
I have made it, since have been indignant, that that could not place the [MOD] in a board  Mods and Plugins (Publishing and Support)" for discussion...

Second, 2 Nicky, interdiction IP will not help... I go through proxy and you have forbidden any others IP :)
I Can prompt how to make protection against a spam in PM.

P.S. 2 max.cady, it not swindle, and worker [MOD]
