Whats with this spam about watching a song somebody wrote?

I've gotten two of them from two different people, who are doing some kinda of mass mailing...

I just delete them with no action, I do not click on the video or link. Safer that way.

Got the same thing.   Deleted.   What a waste of time.

I like grilled Spam on a French roll with melted mozzarella cheese covered in marinara sauce. Kinda like a meatball sandwich. Not the kind you get in an email.

I reported that to the site team yesterday... I guess there's been no action yet.

There HAS been action, just not that you can see.

This person has been flagged as a spammer, but keeps coming back under a different name (so far, he's been here under Taco Time and Josh Roehl).  The Escapees' IT department has been made aware of this spammer and all the information has been sent to them.  They're checking on whether or not there's a way to ban the IP he's using, so, hopefully, we'll get rid of this guy soon.

In the meantime, please don't report the spam (which are being sent via private message) UNLESS you receive one from a name that's different than the above two.

In many cases, blocking a spammer's IP address is relatively useless since they often use anonymous VPN's that give them a different IP address every time they connect. Between my NordVPN account and my three Internet providers, I may use different IP addresses during the course of a day that change frequently, all quite legitimately. If the spammer is a novice, then IP blocking can be somewhat effective though.

That's true, and is what the Escapees' IT department told us when they blocked the guy's IP.  Let's hope the guy is a novice and doesn't come back!

I Googled him... he's a young guy and has profiles or channels on just about every platform out there. From the content he seems pretty narcissistic and perhaps just a little imbalanced. The common thread on each platform, as expected, is that he fancies himself a songwriter.

Is he?  Did you listen to his music?

Yes - some of the worst I've ever heard (and I'm a former working musician).
