    Default Heads up

    We seem to have a new scammer/phisher running around and trying to scam people about selling pens. Derrick42 posted at least 18 mostly identical visitor messages about contacting a Tylor or Vance or Billy about a pen for sale and left an email address.
    I use a fountain pen and a paper planner - paperinkplan.wordpress.com

    I just got hit up by the same guy. A quick Google shows he's done it on other forums as well.

    I found a way to report this type of scammer who doesn't post regular posts.
    Type Derrick42 into the advanced search box and this page comes up.

    Then if you click the "see more" link on the first one you will see something like this that will also show you a Report button (on the right) for reporting it.
