Spam to get me to post items on slickdeals

Not sure if other people also got this and I dont know who they got my email, but i received an email yesterday::

"We sells electronic products,such power bank, led light, car charger, ect. My job is to find reputable deal posters on slickdeals like you. If you have interest, we will submit deals from our Amazon store to you. If your post stays alive, we will send the products to you for free or pay cash to your paypal account."

What a bunch of crap. Looking at many of the deals on slickdeals now and the fake reviews on amazon to the fake posts on slickdeals it has really gotten bad. Its sad for this site i will certainly be coming here at lot less. Its clear that this is occurring constantly and the site is ignoring it because they are getting that extra referral income. sad...

we are aware this is happening. this is very sad, indeed, and has been happening a lot more than usual in the past few years.

we are trying very hard to crack down on these (both merchants and users, old & new, who are being paid to POST and/or VOTE here).

if you received a pm, please mod alert the actual pm.

if you received an email, please forward it to info@slickdeals.net.


rest assured that slickdeals.net will take appropriate action(s). thank you for bringing this to our attention.

And to add, if you can get the name of the merchant or any extra relevant information, please also include that.

We don't want the shills or spammers here any more than users do, and probably even less. Mods and admins spend countless hours trying to combat that type of spam. We take this very seriously and do our best to remove those we find or ban as needed when we can find proof. So the more proof and information you or other users can add, the more helpful it is to us to try to track them down.
