    Ignore it I say. I get it every once in a while and when you open the message its like the wierd letters like éÜÉüàå§ and other stupid symbols. In fact last night I got a message from "12345" with weirdo letters for a message and I added it to my block list.

    Non-latin encodings usually mean that whoever is sending has no idea of your encoding or simply doesn't care - russian and chinese spammer fit the bill very nicely.

    Yes I get these, Even if they were potential customers I can't speak that language so I tend to block them instantly.

    I had this but it meant that when people tried adding me or messaging me about trades etc it didn't get through. Much easier just to block the spammers.
  8. I have gotten this too. Its a spammer, block and delete
