Watch out for fake trackable logs on you TB's and GC's

I get them a couple times a month - they are usually coming from Germany.

For example, I recently got 2 TB's discovered by

which I deleted.

He logs with the following log (translated from German): "Since I gather TB TB I have decided to log a par if the owner does not like this log can immediately delete it"

I looked at his profile earlier and saw that he had 2,915 trackables logged with only 144 geocaches found.

Within the past half hour he has had 1,000 trackable logs deleted.

They must be using a random tracking code generator.

This sure looks like an abuse of the geocaching website.

I am not sure now this can be reported.

Latest account is that this geocacher is down to "0" trackables.  All 2915 have been deleted

There are a lot of other geocachers like this, mainly from Germany
