Nope, mine were all asked for. You can report abuse I guess.

Yes,  for some kind of resin models from a dx_bill ( also in email notification). Alpha models was the name and they wanted to know my interests by model type.Came in yesterday I think. I just dumped it.

I got a PM from him also. He asked for my email address (NOT). He also wanted mr to contact him on Facebook and Twitter (NOT). It appears that he is trying to gain support for Aplha Models.

His threads look like sales promos and presentations. Most of what he posts is the work of other builders which he does give credit to. Kind of reminded me of the guy that was posting diecasts on SA and calling them his pets.

I have not had anything but maybe he is targetting those who show an interest in car kits. Seems to be a Chinese company according to scalemates, and his threads do feel like adverts.

I hope admin will deal with this.

The PM that I received from him was in very broken English.

Don't reply to his posts. If you do you will receive a PM.

I got both a PM and an email from him a few weeks ago a day after I'd replied to one of his posts.
