I just received a spam message from Kayla Noyes. Subject was “hello” 😅July 11, 2019 at 8:07 pm #1572209
Yes, this user has been flagged as a spammer. Sorry for the inconvenience.July 12, 2019 at 9:03 am #1572242SkymancerParticipant
I think there’s another spam user “Kayla Noyes”. I just received a similar message from them.July 12, 2019 at 9:27 am #1572245KimberleeParticipant
I got one too from a Kayla Noyes. Definitely a scammer
And not a native English speaker. Syntax is all wrong
Probably from overseas.
Looking for damaged Windstones to train myself to paint. Flapcats, Griffins, Unicorns, Pegasus, winged kitties, empress and emperor hatchlings and fledgling or other baby or young dragons. Also looking for pristine Sandgrouse Female Hearth Dragon. MUST come from a home where they were bought new from Windstone and have been stored in a 100% Smoker-Free environs including being free from a home where anyone smokes outside (Cigarettes). This is due to a severe and deadly allergy I have. Thank you!July 12, 2019 at 9:45 am #1572250etruscanParticipant

Clay has removed several Kayla Noyes accounts now. If any more show up, we’ll remove them. Just delete those messages. We are sorry this spam got into our website. The spammer does not have your personal email address – the email going to you is sent only by our website to tell you that you have a message in the Private Message system.
sorry for the inconvenience!July 12, 2019 at 5:12 pm #1572348
Just want to let you know that I will be working on this issue over the weekend. The spammers seem to be getting more frequent and more persistent, so I will look at different ways of combatting them. Spam prevention is always a balancing act–how to keep the spammers at bay, while keeping the site easy to use for legitimate community members. I will update you all on new spam prevention measures as soon as possible. Rest assured that your personal info (including your email address) is not at risk. The email you receive is from our site, notifying you that you have a new PM; it is not a message from the spammer directly. Sorry for the inconvenience, and stay tuned for the solution.
