    How can we remove them? I'm assuming they're some chain virus/Trojan where you click on them and then your account becomes infected or a 'zombie account' with the same message to spam

    Indeed, I noticed a few today with the Chat forums.

    Not even that clever. They just con't advertise their ****ty fraudulent company any way on tsr except by attaching images.

    Report them and they'll go. They tend to appear in pairs - 2 new accounts spamming in different forums.

    Hi

    If you see them please do report so we can remove the posts and ban the accounts as mods can't be everywhere all the time and the posters seem to have gotten sneakier about where and how they post their ads. The community team are aware of the problem and doing their best to resolve it.
