Just wondering what the protocol on reporting spam is?
I just received this private message from regatoave,
[
Hello,
Nice to meet you, how is everything, hope all is well with you. My name is Madam Avelin Regato, I found your contact after reading your profile I picked interest to contact you. I've something very important which I would love to share with you privately, therefore, would advise you to kindly write me back on: (avelin_regato7@yahoo.com) so that I'll give you details. Waiting anxiously for your anticipated corporation,

I did a quick Google search on her name & it seems this person is spamming all over the place.

While irritating, the message is a lot more amusing if you mentally hear it in Homer Simpson's voice when he was doing the "Happy Dude" phone scheme.

And why would perfect strangers want to share something important privately with me? Silly spammers. There are countless other ways to appear sincere and genuine. Spelling cooperation correctly is one of them.
