Paul,

Definitely a pervert AND...

Certainly inappropriate.....this may be one best passed along to the local authorities. Don't let holding onto this type of information be something that could be regretted in the future.

In my opinion every inappropriate/suspicious activity should be reported.

There is really no humor in this behavior.

Oh, and while you all seem too smart to fall for this, please remember that Spammers are not only after your credit card, they may be intending to steal your identity, your clients information, and your leads. Caveat Emptor

Paul - I've received similar one's! Even one from a Jessica!!! I believe it's just SPAM. I received another one yesterday from a Ruth(?)
Maybe their targeting Murrieta agents!! I don't open them, and just hit "Delete"...

I had a flash,the "Hello, my name is Peggy" commercial came to mind. And as Ann pointed out, the endless male spammer on trulia persists. This is one of those instances where bad attention is not better than no attention at all.

Lol. I think every website gets them. Like the annoying folks trying to advertise "endless male" or whatever it is, if they get no/few takers they'll probably wander off to more receptive sites.

This is an emerging problem on Trulia as auto-spammers take over the site. I actually hope they're merely perverts, as that would provide us some reprieve once in a while. Since they're generated by malware programs looking to capture your private information, it's never-ending. Besides my leads box, I've seen it on blog posts as well.

Thanks all for your contributions. I enjoyed reading your comments. I think it is important to keep in mind that this kind of thing is like a door way to a place we do not want to go and that opening this door will lead to trouble we do not want. This lead was not very subtle and is easily recognizable for what it is. But there are those that are not so easily recognizable that can come from emails, texts, web sites and the like. Vigilance is the key and reporting this kind of stuff is appropriate. We must be carefull.

May you all have a safe and sucessfull year!
