Fraud has become more stealthy to unaware members.
They now have a almost normal looking profile with actors names and movies but still send letters out to attract new victims. Like this letter.

If you ANYONE sees a letter like this. Report it and get them removed!!
Yeah, I noticed that too. Just to chime in if I may. These types of members will usually have no profile picture or if they do it will most likely be non film related. They will also have a hot link attached to a recent status comment.
Like this kat over here
Ok. So pending on when u read this there may be nout there, but I see one the now. And u get the point. lol
A update for this, I have noticed in about 85% of the accounts I have found, have these things in their accounts. The accounts might have just gibberish, or "I will tell you later", or they will say something over and over again like "ImagoodgirlImagoodgirl" in their profile under About me, All Time Favorite Movies, All Time Worst Movies, Favorite Actors or Actresses, and Favorite Directors. So if you see something like that post the link in here or report it. So if you are someone that welcome new members, keep an eye out for this.
There are also a couple of other things but weren't as common as I listed above this includes, a few sometimes the country or hometown would just have gibberish to, some didn't even have a country, their name on spill is sometimes all in lower case with numbers at the end or sometimes without any numbers.
