How to find a solution against scam and spam members on BuddyPress

    Hi!

    I tried everything. I have all these plugins enabled on my BP Install:
    Akismet Anti-Spam
    Anti-Spam by CleanTalk
    BuddyPress Auto Activate Autologin Redirect To Profile On Signup : I need to allow my user to use my network like every social network without waiting for any moderation and approbation.
    No CAPTCHA reCAPTCHA
    Stop Spammers

    Everyday, I have a lot of spam registration who send a lot of messages to all my members, so my network is not working now, my members cannot use it because they are all receiving a lot of e-mail notifications because of spam.

    all messages are all the same:
    “Hi dear,
    how are you my dear I’m from UK, and
    i have something important to disclose with you
    if you don’t mind please contact me, through my private @gmail.com">aminatadennis0@gmail.com
    so that i can explain myself to you
    Sincerely.”

    It’s very very annoying.

    Is there a solution without approving each member? Because we cannot approve hundred and hundred members each day, it’s impossible…

    Thanks in advance for your help !

    I think you can try to limit sending messages only to friends and remove sending messages to everyone. Perhaps this will reduce spam

    or try “All In One WP Security & Firewall”
    There are several options that will protect you from bots

    Hi!
    Thanks for your reply!
    It doesn’t work. I think that it’s not spam but scam: it’s real human that register and send messages.
    Is there a way to create a rule to automatically block/remove a user who send an e-mail in the 1st message that he sends?
    Thanks.
