Receiving strange postings

I have been receiving strange postings about printers from a "member" AF123.  Anyone else getting these?  I have been blasted with quite a number of these over the past few days.  They are inappropriate for this forum.  Is this a scam?  Is anyone looking into this and checking out this AF123?  I have changed my password, thinking it might be a scam, since it is not related to any afib issue, and have not clicked on any links associated with the e-mails I received.  When I logged into the site on my own and not through the weird e-mail, I see that AF123's posting are on the At Home feed.  They are continuing even after my password change.  What gives with this- anyone know?????????

    I'm being blasted also.  Very annoying.

    It is terribly annoying to all of us, but please be patient by realizing what it takes for us to shut them down. We are playing whack-a-mole with this guy (who was doing the same thing over the weekend) even though we really don't have time to deal with him. Thus, please be patient with us.

    Mellanie,

    Thanks for your post.  I did get a number of these over the weekend and was worried that my account had been hacked.  Got another one today- and then after my posting I received another slew of them.  It is really annoying.  You would think that with the current health crisis we are all facing, that this small minded person would find something better to do than create a disturbance and distraction at this time.  Sorry that you have to deal with this.

    It is how people in some other countries earn a living. They are given the content to spread around and have no idea what they are posting. They just have to make so many posts a day.

    Thank you, MellanieSAF, for trying to remove from the AFib site the person who is posting "printer ads" that retiredlcsw, Spencer and others of us are finding so annoying.

    If this is whack a mole, we need a bigger whacker.

    Spencer, We are trying to replace the fly swatter with a mallet! :-)

    OutsmartIt, Thanks.
