    Help me!! This guy keeps spamming me!!

    Ok, this is how it started.

    I go into a game called "I Buy Paypal." Now, I do sell items over Paypal sometimes, so I figured, what they heck, I'll sell some again. Everythin goes fine, I give him my paypal email, he tells me what I need, we agree on a price. Then he asks "what your name, so I know its you i'm sending it to." I am not dumb, so I immediately know he's tryin to scam me (put's my first name in a fake-paypal email). I get the email, and sure enough its "Dear Daniel Forman (this is NOT my real name)." So I say "lol... nice scam, but it ain't workin with me." I leave the game, only to be bombarded by his spambot... its 7-8 lines of crap, and it says "/w ******** if you want this to stop." My first instinct was: SQUELCH TIME!!. However, his account is full of 0's and o's!!! VERY HARD to distinguish =(. So I ask my friend to get on my acct, if he can see which are o's and which are 0's. Anyway, I obtain the correct account, and i squelch him. HOWEVER, I get "connection lost" every 5 minutes!! Is this because he's spamming me (even though he's squelched) and bnet can't take the lag?? It is very annoying for me to create another account, because I play with my lvl 93 hammerdin on Ladder.

    Anyone have any suggestion? Should I email blizzard? Should I just make a new account, and never sell through paypal ever again?

    Ask a friend to help you in trades. The person will eventually grow tired of harrassing you.

    options commands. in chat type: /? o
    it'll display a more indepth thingy, but basically
    /o igw would be the one you want I think. Ignores all whispers. /o unigw to turn it off. Also /o igpub to ignore all public messages /o unigpub to toggle it off.

    Two Words, "Password Protected" - put a password on your games that only you and your friends will know. I seriously dont think the SPAM Bots will bother you - unless it is a former friend that is doing the boting at u.....

    Umm, he is getting whispered by the guy...

    Yeah, just use xenon's way. That's nice for me to know as well...
    Hope he stops bothering you.

    Hmm, would I be too rude if I said he brought this upon himself? :scratch:
