Hi, I am also facing the same issue. I have tried everything but, couldn't fix the issue. I have made contact with oDesk support and they told me that tey are looking into the issue.
They also told me that many users have came up withe same issue. I hope that this issue will be fixed soon.
I found another simple solution for this. Obviously the spam is coming from your email. Even the odesk team notified me of the same. It appears whenever you use the odesk tracker, it triggers the spam in a way i can't explained. It's just that i have been observing it.
In my case, The spam messages always leaves a number, so when i confronted him he said he didn't know about it. I am thinking he used a black hat method for email marketing causing the spam.
The trick is to go to your notifications in your account settings and then turn off all notifications to your email. Uncheck everything! as soon as i did that, it's been one month and nothing has happened so far. I did this even before the odesk team gave their solution. They were kind enough to mute some threads in my account.
This is a major, major loophole and i am hoping odesk solves this once and for all otherwise it could cause a major problem in the future.
and another advice, if you see such spam messages always alert odesk. Don't assume it will just go away. Otherwise all your employers will report your account and you will be suspended.
Anyone found resolutionon this? Been happening on my account for 2 days and all my Odesk contacts getting angry at me. What should I do?
Already contact Odesk support several times and got no help at all. Please help!
THE WORST SCENARIO ON ODESK!
I have a file attached onto my project from the project's developer **edited for Community Guidelines**. When I download and extracted the file directly from the oDesk side, the file turned to be CTB-Locker virus who encrypted my PC files.
The developer is completely shocked about the issue, as he stated this is not in relation to this scam activity!
I asked oDesk on how to process, as their system is the one who allowed virus upload... and because of them my PC got harmed.
Waiting to hear from them, as ransom must be paid and I am avail to share py PC via Team Viewer.
