    I've reported five spams on the Loans board 20 minutes ago. Nothing happening yet.

    I love second hand furniture that other people have thrown out. I wear other people's second hand clothes. I eat out of date (yellow sticker) food, and I love skip diving. My brilliant life on a pension.

    Sadly there is so much of it arriving at the moment that it takes a while to process the deluge

    Deluge is the right word, I am constantly bombarded with it on the blog.

    Not a spam, but I've just done a google search and an advert popped up with an advert for "amazing - Martin's new venture helps British families earn a second income" (with a picture of Martin Lewis, so no doubt it's claiming to be from him) - I presume this isn't endorsed by him at all.

    Link is:


    Edit - link doesn't work, but I have a screenshot if needed.

    Martin is taking legal action against Facebook concerning fake endorsements, so perhaps that will encourage Google to be a little more proactive.

    Hope he wins. It's particularly irritating that Facebook keep saying we simply need to report posts and they will remove them. So we need to sit around scouring millions of Facebook posts for malicious content? Unpaid? As Martin himself says:

    Facebook need to police Facebook

    Oh wait, what was the topic again? We need to police MSE...

    My apologies - it was my intention to just bring it to attention, I certainly don't want to propogate it further. This ad seemed to be all over my google search results, until I blocked it. I presume this is a separate issue to Martin's FB case, though when he wins that, maybe other advert providers will take note
