Man, scammers will learn and adapt to any obstacles in their way! It will always amaze me how fast they change their behaviors to avoid detection.
I've passed this information onto our Trust & Safety Risk Analysis team. Thanks for bringing this to our attention! @BrightMoonstone also alerted me of this just the other day as well!
Just got word that the Risk Analysis team is aware of this new trend and they're working on ways to block this from happening!
You guys reporting these issues really helps us stay on top of them and resolve them ASAP!
There are no protections when people volunteer their info. All these are phishing scams...meaning that the victims took the "bait" and indirectly (albeit unknowingly) gave others their personal info/passwords.
