People spamming external phishy links in Achat
For the past 3 months at least I have been receiving in-game daily spam with external phishy links from one single person who changes nickname every day. I ignore the new nickname every single time but since he makes new nicknames, the new spam gets through.
How about you finally make the free accounts do an email verification before letting them be able to chat? It’s the year 2021 (almost) and free accounts without at least e-mail verification don’t exist in this world anymore… Maybe you should do the same?
I used to have more than 40 nicknames in my ignore list but since I re-installed Windows a few days ago all my ignore list has been cleared (I discovered that the ignore list is stored locally in my computer and not the game’s server). Here are a few names for sample:

Report to support, or use the red exclamation button above the text box.
If you are unsure about using it then see below.
Make sure though that the person sending these messages are in the chat box in the left hand side (Selected user). Another window will appear and it's the bottom option stating Report TOS violation, add a comment there too if you want to and then press submit.January 27, 2022 at 5:24 pm #193922VaughanModerator
Achat has now attempted to stop these spam scammers by banning web addresses in the chat.
The sender can see them but the receiver cannot.
I believe it has worked and there is no complaints now.
Unfortunately, it has also stopped legitimate links working such as Achats Forum, YouTube and Radio sharing in the rooms.
Its probably worth the loss though.September 18, 2023 at 12:40 am #203214AdamsssParticipant
Kyoka …… She’s a scammer, she’s looking for a loser with money and she’ll want to get the last of her money from him.September 18, 2023 at 11:27 am #203215ZuzannahParticipant
If she’s trying to scam you or your friends and in lobby (or in room, Not MP unfortunately) tell them to use the Exclamation mark in the chat box.
Make sure their name (the scammer) is in the person chatting to though and another box will come up asking why you pressed it.
