Random friend requests with advertisements?

Is anyone else getting friend requests with a scam website attached as the messaged? it's really starting to annoy me and the report for spamming doesn't work. any answers to stopping this?

Actually nvm i just recently discovered the block contact button! -.-
Getting a few each week. Block won't help you, they always have more accounts to spam with :(

If absolutely NO-ONE responded, then they'd stop because they would no longer make any money from it.
All it takes is 1 in 1000 or so to blindly (stupidly?) respond for it to be profitable.
As long as there are stupid people, there will be spammers to exploit them.
I've noticed as well that the report spam stopped working a month ago, pretty much get one of these requests every time i log in

The error has been fixed now, so report away.

While the report error was going on they got worse because they were not getting reported and hence banned/blocked.

There not spelling mistakes, Im speaking 'Ye Old English'
I accept, you never know if they will give you glod or not. I read a post on general forum about this guy who got one and accidentally accepted, then the spammer invi'ed him to game and gave him heaps of money.....then they realized what they did and wanted the money back.... funny story really, I looked for it to link it but couldn't find it. Hopefully that will happen to me one day and I get 124mil gold...Heres for hoping.
really??? wow!
