Just wanted to share this info with all DP users: do not click on any links posted by following users as you might want to get a virus. They are using re-direct links that will take you to spam sites containing viruses.

How to spot fake deals:

1. Most of them are posted in Freebies area
2. Posts created by Noob users with no feedback or very low, sometimes negative score.

Users:
nammaps
gig_donna
fedan30
danielperees
joeyserrano
lovesavingsome
maryhan79
iguvqmym

If you spot a deal posted by these users or similar low score "looking fake" deals, please mark it as "Spam".
We all know that mods are working hard on keeping DP clean and user friendly. So let's help them!

Why can noobs post anything? have waiting time and a mod review before they are allowed to post anything.

Considering they've been outed their accounts should be deleted.
Perhaps mods could keep the IP ADDRESSEES of these people so that If they try to create another account from the same location they can be denied.
Yes,I know that you can get an anonymous IPD but they may not ALL know that. ( Well,unless they read THIS) lol

What I noticed some of the spammers are also doing is posting a legit deal just to get a 1 or 2 rep and then post SPAM.
