I have gotten two messages in the last two days asking me to contact people at their private email. They want to be my friend. These are spam, is anyone else getting these?

Yes Iz, I got exactly the same thing. From 2 different people, supposedly. Just now deleted and blocked 4 identical messages (I think, I only read the first one) from "babyluveu". These seem to come in waves.

Yup, me too. Someone called judite, who claimed to have seen my profile and wanted to be friends. I blocked her.

Yep, same for me. I HATE these spammers.
What's the best way to deal with them? Block obviously but should we report their names to the editors to get their accounts zapped?

I got them as well :(

I've gotten a few over the past couple of weeks...always come in pairs. I just block them

Thanks so much for reporting this spam! The accounts of these specific spammers have been deactivated, but please feel free to email us if there are any other accounts we should check.

Here is one that is not blocked yet: johnson2
I got a message about a secret trunk box containing 18000000 USD! I could have gotten 20% of it if I had responded :)

Wow. Maybe you should have kept that one to yourself!
