Skout engineers are constantly coming up with ways to keep scammers out, but we can never be perfect. In the millions of legitimate messages our members exchange every day, there will be a few bad ones despite all our engineering.

If you have encountered any of them, I apologize because I know they could be a nuisance. If you haven't yet, please make a mental note and do NOT not associate yourself with them!
