Solved Bogus registration requests

Post by Kodiak1972 on February 17th 2016, 7:47 pm

The last two days I've gotten 4 bogus registration requests. Anything I can do about that other than ignore then? Maybe a way to find IP address to see where they are coming from?

They look completely fake. To me at least. It's a small community that we cater to and we don't advertise. To not know who it is that's requesting is odd.

Have you did a Google search for those email providers?

Also if you get the email address, you can send an email to them to see what can of reply you get.

Just got another since my last post.

I haven't done a Google search, but I did send an email to the first one I listed above and got no response or kickback for invalid email address.

It is spam.

.top is owned by some Chinese company that spams for free registrations in order to get their company ranked higher.

Hello,

Yes of course there is a way to ban email addresses or e-mail address endings. You can do so by going to ACP (Admin panel)-->Users and groups--> Ban Control--> Ban e-mail addresses-->Ban one or several e-mail addresses. Put in the email address or email address ending into the text slot and hit save. The email address/address ending will now be banned and no one will be able to register or even login with such an email address.

Note: I believe in order to ban the ending, you need to put an artisk (*) in front of the ending of the email address. For example, I believe to ban the ending .top, you would need to add it in as *@.top . With the artisk there, it will pretty much not allow any email address ending with @.top as you want. Wink

-Brandon

You can do a domain Email ban

ACP >> Users & Groups Tab >>  Users >> Ban Control >> Ban an Email Address tab >>

Now to ban an Email domain you need to do it like this
*@edworkei.top
*@free-mail.top

Putting a * before the @ will ban the Email addresses ending after the @
