A Network of Christian Fellowship for Comics Fans, Pros, and Amateurs

It appears there is a scammer/spammer from Ghana by the name of Stella Maris on this website I have received a message, and initially, I thaught it was a proposal to work in a comic project. Searching in the Google I found older denounces of spamming against this person (she or he used other names like "Stella Kwafe", but the e-mail adress and the message are always the same.

Oddly, the x isn't working for me. I can click it, but it doesn't delete.

Hey Aaron,        You should see a small blue "x" on the upper right corner of just your comments. Clicking on the X deletes that comment only.

Thanks for this thread and reporting dear Stella to admin (see "Report an issue" at the bottom of this and the main page.)

Dear Lord, help Stella get infected by the Holy Spirit, and develop a terminal case of redemption and rebirth.

Sorry for the double post. I was trying to fix the link text and I didn't know I couldn't delete the old one. I was trying to say, "this is an interesting thread on another forum about email scam red flags"

Yeah, these pop up from time to time. I've done some forum moderating before, and I don't think it can be prevented entirely. 

Like Marco did, doing a search on the email address or message text is a quick way to check for boilerplate scam messages. The very vague message, with zero details is another red flag. (this is an interesting thread on another forum about email scam red...)

Always look before you leap, or to put it another way, be sure it's not bait before you bite.

Ha, ha, I got something from her, too! XD

"Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale5888@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
Stella."

I think somebody already took care of her. I clicked to see when and where she sent it on CCA but she wasn't there anymore! XD
