Spammer using Message Center

Recommended Posts

This weekend, an individual created multiple geocaching accounts in order to spam users through the Message Center. We wanted the geocaching community to know that we have banned all accounts associated with this spam activity. It is no longer necessary to report these spam accounts to Geocaching HQ. We recommend geocachers use the "Block User" or "Hide Conversation" features in Message Center to hide the conversations from these now banned users. Do NOT click on any of the links included in the message. It may involve malware.

Even though the accounts are now banned from Geoaching.com, geocachers may continue to receive email notifications resulting from these messages for a few hours. At Geocaching HQ, we will be discussing ways to prevent this from happening again.

Now it's time to head out and go geocaching!
