Every day I start WOT I get a mesage  from somebody that claims I can get free credits and stuff if I go to a www.aqua or something.

I know that it is a scam but what I dont understand is that WOT is doing nothing about it.

Looks like they have you down as a mug.  I never get those messages.

Me neither. Just block the sender.

 

Or you could accept the gifts and get your account locked because the 'gift' was bought with a stolen credit card.

 

 

Either way you won't get any more mesages.

In other threads it has been suggested to tick the "block" spam setting.  Not sure if that's why I don't get bombarded though I have had one or two over the years.

like what? ban the accounts? They can make a new one in a second, so that won't help. And blocking chat for new players will screw WG over more then leaving it on atm anyway I'm willing to bet. As then new players can't even PM anyone they actually know etc.

Stop visiting erotica-filled sites or downloading programs from a certain page.

I get every day 2 messages by those "guys".

I blocked everybody of them, but received only more messages from the next "bot".

Till today i blocked more than 20 bots which send me the same messages with this www.aqua-side with credits and stuff.

 

I really hope that wg will do something against them because its very annoying....

You can enable this option in your settings that only allows for people in your friend list to send you messages.

Yes they can, they have to give us a save portal to play this game. People (I do) pay for this game.

So, yes ban the accounts. Sooner or later they will stop.

I dont get as many as you, I get about 2 every time I play. But I think WOT has to do something about it. If I hit a teammate by accident a few times than they are making me blue. Thats how fast they are, but I dont read or hear nothing about this aua-side and I think it happens to a lot of people.

That's not someone taking action fast, it's automatic.

 

And you care about access to your account, these spam bots don't.  If WG ban one then they register another three seconds later.  IP address bans are pointless, you would need to ban the whole internet.

 

Try the block spam option in settings, see if it does any good.

I still think they can, but I will look at your tip.
