    This is getting ridiculous, first I saw this post today, I reported it and assumed it was removed, now somebody is trying to sell bank accounts again in the Introduction forum!

    Keep reporting them! :D

    We can't catch them all, so reporting them really does help.

    Edit: I don't see the one in the intro forum so someone may have already gotten to it.

    That would be me. :D

    If they register using an IP address that hasn't previously been used then we've no way of knowing they're not legitimate members until the spam starts flowing. The best we can do is ask you to report it so that it can be trashed ASAP, and hopefully the culprits will eventually decide that spamming AF is more trouble than it's worth.

    The number of these we get is ridiculous. And it's not the only regular spam topic we have either :(

    What I can't understand is why they choose to post on an android site?
