Question

Phising/ Malware messages


The user RamseyLowe51773 has sent me suspicious links to what I assume are malware sites via sound clouds message system. Worth checking out in case this user has spammed other users and put them at risk.

I am not going to post the link the profile sent me for obvious reasons.
Does this happen often and can it be stopped?
Regards,
Denis

cant you report it to soundcloud? most sites have a report spam and scam email addresses
where you can forward the messages for them to investigate!

if this has come through in a soundcloud message, there will be an option to block that user & then an additional option comes up to allow you to report the message as spam & its fired over to the soundcloud security guys who will deal with the account.

I have done just that, I hope this kind of thing doesn't happen too much!
