    Fake and Spam replies to Private Car ad

    I posted an advert to sell my car 2 days ago, so far I've only been contacted by spammers looking for assistance to repatriate millions of dollars in cash left by their deceased brother in Syria - at least along these lines. Is anyone else getting these "buyers" replying adverts? It's extremely frustrating and these spammers need to be stopped and weeded out altogether.

    Can you report those private messages please?

    We spend a crapload of time filtering these users and their IP ranges etc out.

    Where are those people from?

    When I get on my China phone, that IP gets blocked all the time :-p

    How do they get through?
