Charlie I really don’t think scammers can be completely stopped. Mine started as a PM from “Ollie” wanting to be a buddie or friend, I was under the impression that to be able to send PM”s the member must have submitted at least one comments that was vetted before any other privileges were granted. When I went to “Ollie’s” page there were three comments each one was “HI” nothing else just “HI” and this get Ollie full privileges. NOT GOOD but thanks to the Admin the account was closed shortly after. Maybe new members should be nominated by a current member or something along those lines. Just another headache for the administrators but if all members keep viligent and alert other members of a possible scam there seems to be little else to be done and the old saying “if it sounds to good to be true it possible isn’t”.
