    Spam/scam clusters - three simultaneous messages from similar names

      Hello All,

       

      Has anybody else seen the following pattern of spammy inquiry messages?

       

      - Three inquiries for different properties occur in rapid succession.

      - Each inquirer provides a different full name, but the first name on each inquiry is the same. Using hypothetical examples, an Andrew West, an Andrew Jones, and an Andrew Chin all inquire at once.

      -  Each message in the inquiry is the exact same. One example is - "Please provide a full price quote at andrew@madeupemail. com , so we can book this quickly."

       

      We have received this type of spam cluster twice in the past four months through VRBO Messaging, and I'm curious about who else has received messages of this type.

       

      Thanks!
