Arabic BBM Requests

I have recently started to get a ton of BBM requests by pin written in what appears to be Arabic. I have not given anyone my pin or posted it anywhere either. Is there a way to block or prevent these?

Re: Arabic BBM Requests

Someone might have posted your PIN by mistake to a BBM buddy request group.

Best chance is to google search your PIN and see if it shows up anywhere, and if you can, ask the forum administrator to delete it.


Otherwise, you can block PIN messages from outside your Address Book with your Security Firewall settings, but you can't block the BBM requests.

Re: Arabic BBM Requests

Thanks. I set the firewall settings already but as you said, it doesn't block BBM buddy requests. I googled pin and didn't find it either. I have started responding to some in hopes they tell me where they got my pin but no luck there either.

Re: Arabic BBM Requests

accept the friendship request, accept the group request, then disconnect from all of them.
