I just banned all the accounts mentioned so far. I also added the URL to the censor so hopefully that'll prevent the links in future ones from not working. We'll continue to monitor and ban any accounts we see spamming this.
Might put a sticky announcement to increase awareness?
The myth on the Internet is that Canadians are nice people. Those people who say this just haven't been on RFD.

Trying to determine the scale of it right now. Will be doing something this morning and it'll be based on how many users were affected.

Obvious scam obvious!

lesnickowmaxim was the sender here.

They waited about two weeks after creating the account, vs the ones posted so far that seemed to be same day.

EDIT: Of course after I hit Post I notice they're already banned...

Is there really anyone who fell for an obvious scam like this?
As we all know, the Greater Toronto Area is the center of the universe!
