We screen all new member registrations so we get ~99% of the spam accounts. Occasionally a few will slip through. Usually what you see are spam bots. There is no actual human contacting you. Simply report the PM and we will ban the spam account.

Thank you.

If ANYONE receives a PM/email from a TDIClub member shilling anything and they are NOT a registered vendor, please forward the PM/emails to me. To report spam, trolling, or any problem post, click the report post icon. (The icon in the actual problem post, not the one in my sig. The idiots know who they are... )

Hi BK,

Member joexc joined yesterday and immediately sent a PM in reply to my WTB post. I think he's a rip-off artist. I think his activity should be watched closely.

Cheers,

PH
