    So far this morning, I've killed off 7 Russian accounts being used to start conversations with members. Weirdly enough, they're all sending the same message and photo and link to romance.

    Please report them, should any pop up in your inbox. And DONT CLICK ON THE LINK!

    A photo is attached to the message, early 20's blonde girl seated on a light green sofa, some ornately framed cheap 'art' on the wall behind her. Nothing overtly sexual about it, no nudity. Looks innocent. Cute enough, not too smart looking -- which is probably intentional. Anyone dumb enough to get suckered by this is probably attracted to that.

    You're not missing anything.

    Thanks Sam. I just checked and noticed the Conversation post is now gone from my inbox. Wiped clean, I hope.

    Откуда вы знаете, что они русские? Может быть, они украинские ...

    I could go for a little Russian Collusion in my life. It's only spam if it's unwanted, right?

    Missex70 sent me a message. I'm disappointed it wasn't real.

    Hey, as a firearms instructor (and former FTO) I've had a lot of previous experience in quickly recognizing the benefits of seeing the potential trouble that awaits if some cute new-hire female cop comes asking for private help in her shooting .... :outtahere:

    Dodging this sort of online fishing/trolling doesn't require any particular thought. ;)
