    The Spammer (keran gerni) just PM’d me 8 minutes ago – I’ve emailed Jennifer and Susie.
    Then I blocked the Miscreant and deleted the PM without clicking on it or reading it.

    DO NOT CLICK ON OR READ THE PM MESSAGE – DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY!

    I got that same spam message from ‘Karen Gerni’ who is ‘working for the United States Army’ today as well. Really weird message. I don’t know how this benefits the spammer.

    Just FYI, I received the same spam last night. I googled the name before responding and found it related to several scams.

    Hi guys! Sorry this problem returned overnight when there was no one around to squish it. I think I have blocked all of our current “wave” of spammers so you should not get any NEW spammy private messages (timestamped after 9:30am EST). If you do, please reply here with the exact user name of the person sending you spam.
    As for what to do with the spam private messages you already do have (if any), just delete them. I think that by me marking the users as spammers on our web platform that their PMs might become unavailable to you… but if not, just delete them. Please don’t be alarmed if you read the message; reading it won’t cause you any trouble (other than annoyance). Just please don’t click any links in the messages! That’s where you can get into trouble.

    I confess I don’t know enough about our web platform to remove any pending notifications you might have for new messages; hopefully Clay can figure that one out for us!

    (I’m re-posting this to all the current threads about the spammer)

    Syrena, I assume it’s a phishing (or similar) scam once you e-mail them. So irritating ):<

    There’s a bunch of spam posted in Chinese writing just posted in several new topics in the forum now.

    Yep, apparently China is upset about the tariffs and taking it out on Windstone forum. Sad
