RE: [newintown-57] The Trouble with Spammers...

Greg Shepard is a notorious toad and troll.

There's something quite weird and creepy about him.

He tried bothering me a couple of years back, after I
made the mistake of talking to him at an entirely separate
meetup group.

Also I know for sure that he's tried to hijack members from at
least one other large, popular meetup group.

So he's been at it for a long time.

Nic - I really think he should be reported to meetup.

I can't think of anything more obnoxious than taking the name
of a popular, well established group name to set up a rival group
with a deliberately similar sounding name. The fact that he's doing
it for commercial gain makes him even more of a grub.

Perhaps should circulate a warning to all Melbourne
members, and as he goes under separate names
a photo would be quite useful too.

Hi Everyone,

We're having some trouble with a local spammer and serial pest, Greg Shepard (he also goes by other names: most recently "George" and "Alexandra").

So, if anyone sends you any unusual, unexpected, or unwanted messages please let me know ASAP so I can remove the offender, and prevent it happening again.

They may even try to fool you by saying that they're contacting you under my direction, or that they're my friend, which of course they are not and never have been.

The best way to report anything to me is either by replying to this message, or sending an email to: [address removed]
