Update, April 12, 2017: Pinterest silently removed from the help section the references to the group chat feature. It seems that the spam has been stopped.
Several days ago I logged into my Pinterest account. Quite many messages were waiting for me in the Messages tab.
All of them were claiming that X or Y sent me a pin. Geez, everyone suddenly started to spam me?
Very unlikely. I said to myself, “There’s something fishy here, Pinterest.”
So I took a break and I pinned something to a group board that I created.
Huge surprise… I got a message that claimed that I sent a pin. It even had the option of reporting it as spam. Kind of reporting myself for the spam I didn’t send. (more…)
