I think most of us at any given time have been messaged by new accounts who “want to get to know you,” or “would like to chat.” If you haven’t been subjected to this, consider yourself lucky.
I get these accounts spamming me 2-3x a week. Mostly new accounts, all appear to be male (although I’m sure the male members get female spam accounts bothering them).
These accounts are almost always brand new, no reading history and mostly follow the opposite sex only. They also appear to know nothing about Wattpad. They also pretend to be widowers, military, government officials, etc. I can only assume they steal profile pictures from real people and use them as their own.
But today tops it. The scammer/bot account has children splashed over his background image. I presume someone else’s children. And to me, that’s gone too far. I will report him. He is currently telling me to chat with him in Hangout. So he is a scammer.
So my question is this: Is there a way to disable messages? Or vet these new accounts? Prevent them from messaging people?
