Literally my blacklist is full of them, that's not even counting the ones I simply clicked X & moved on. Before that offer was something crap like powerleveling up to T5 German CAs at around $35 USD (hahahahahaha). I get this on a frequent occurrence WG, sending it to support wont make the problem go away I'll just get ANOTHER ONE from ANOTHER account. So if you haven't gotten it yet, congratulations here's what it looks like, I get these all the time (I must be special). My blacklist will keep filling & soon I'll have a collection of spambots. This one takes the cake for sending 2 messages in the same chatbox.

Blocked tons of them when they were spamming port chat, but haven't seen any for a long time.

I used to get this [edited]a lot in Tanks. The scammers just select a random player to spam with their crap.

Blocking them is pointless. They'll never use that name again. At least that's coming from other games. I've never seen one in this game.

I've never seen this either.  However, I just recommend reporting these accounts to WG as bots.

To answer a few of the questions out there:

1. Reporting to support -

Do you know how long my blacklist is? I'd have to open a support ticket for each & single one. Why must I exert more effort than the bots did to spam me? Why must I waste time out of my day to bother reporting bots? It's not my job I'm here to play ships. It also won't make the problem go away as I will get spammed again with a different account, rendering reporting being an absolute waste of time.

 

2. My account is somehow out there -

It's as out there as anyone on the forums, maybe a bit more out there if they decide to go lookup top scoring players in ships. I know once someone contacted me just because I had really good stats in a ship. But anyways that's besides the point, they keep coming & I'm as publicly available as anyone on this forum with their name attached.
