Hi this is a message I got this morning, this is a community not a shop.

You have received a message through Travellerspoint from Nadina Malii

PLEASE DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!

For your convenience, the message is included in this email:

-------------------------

Where would you like to have a great weekend? I recommend you choose my
services. I'm a personal guide. If you want to find more information
about me and about the country I am from visit my site
www.beautifulsoroca.com at SIGHTS AND ATTRACTIONS section you find a lot of PHOTOS. Hope
we'll meet in reality.
This is not the last weekend. I'll be online all summer, so you can
gain some money it is not expensive.For BED & BREAKFAST and guiding
through the entire City you'll pay let's say up to 500$ for two days. Is it a
good price for you? This is for the first time you'll come, so I won't
take too much money from you. You won't have the same chance the second
year.
You can choose having a small rest during the summer holidays. A lot of
mystery (in the fortress) and fun expects you here.
We see it is hot this summer, so you can also swim in the Nistru River
which flows in front of the fortress.
As you can find in ARCHIVES Mr. Barton did reservations for his entire
family for the next year, too. If you try it once you'll want to come
back again I'm sure, it is a fact already. Make up your mind. I took
this kind of job, because I must to apply to a University and I don't have
enough money. So, while you'll have rest, I'll gain some money for
achieving my main goal( apply to a University)
Tell your friends about my site. Thanks.
Best regards!
Nadina

hrishabh,

When you receive a massage that is SPAM, all you need to do it click the link to the left of the message "report as spam", then confirm it is spam. The sender will be reviewed by the admin., and they will be blocked form sending private messages, and ultimately deleted from TP if they continue to send spam.

Hi hrishabh,

I actually blocked this users account yesterday already so the messages cannot be read by the recipients anymore. Of course, if you have email notification switched on, you will have received a copy to your email address.

Just in case, I flagged all the members messages as spam again ;)

I agree though, this kind of thing is blooming annoying, but there's really very little to do about it. It would be counter productive to switch of the messaging service, just to stop one person every now and then from sending out a promo...

One of those sad facts of life we have to live with :(

Any questions or comments, feel free to ask!

Cheers,

Sam
