Reporting a player who is strange
I had some odd person chat with me telling me he was a “diamonds mining engineer” who when to Ukraine and ‘mined diamonds’, then brought them back to “New Jersey USA” to sell them. He kept calling me “dear”. That, a very poor game, and other odd grammar led me to think s/he was not the American s/he insisted he was. Started telling me what sounded like more flat out lies. I ended up blocking him/her but would like a way to report weirdos. They gave me the creeps.
Sorry that you are having an issue with a user. Players are encouraged to use the support option in the settings to send a username and report the user. We will take action in identifying and blocking them.
Also, players can block the user immediately by touching their chum and then using the block button.
Thanks for your help and reporting the person. We appreciate it.

I've blocked 5 or 6 people recently as once they start chatting start to ask personal questions or suggest to chat elsewhere like What's App. They have all said they were American males. An unsettling feeling!
Wordchums6 is a user who is trying to get me to contact an email address to claim money I won from WordChums. I was told to contact Kelly4sure100@gmail.com and to give them code AZTS2019 to start the process of claiming $150,000. Really???
One very early comments I got was actually a physical threat using a lot of nasty words, telling me not to cheat or ..... Having become rather bored with these words in my daily life, I just wrote back, "I don't cheat so keep your boring language to yourself"! I didn't hear from him#her again. Another friend told me someone tried to sell her a sob story of some kind and ask for money. Several other people have shown a great interest in getting to know me personally and I just refuse to chat about anything other than the game we are playing or the weather! They are probably trying to get information out of me for somereason or other, best known only to themselves!
Had two points then got 33 points
Had two points the got 33 points
One guy asked me how the weather was, asked if I was married, he called me dear and then asked for my email so he could use it for google questions. He also asked me for my age and I responded by asking what’s your age and he said “Answer my question.” That’s when I blocked him.
watch out for William H. asking too many personal questions and trying to get me to download WhatsApp. doesn't get the hint. will block him but it will hurt my playing %.
I’ve encountered what appears to be new users.
All of them are male. They are mostly on a level 6 and have lost a large percent of the games.
I’ve lost out on games having to block them!
I constantly being harassed by scammers, it's the same thing every time, where I live, my age, my job, they ask for your email so they can 'get to know you better'. It's a daily occurrence, I'd like a report feature so we can get rid of the scum
Haha....I told one of them that my occupation is babysitting my great grandchildren and they resigned the game immediately.
You can probably block people when you look at their profile.
I’ve had 3 different players all in the last few hours “claim” to be from Texas, either widowed or divorced. I mean honestly how dumb do they think we are!! If I resign from the game and block them, why should this count as a loss for me? So unfair!
straight up block 'um,geez!!!!
I've come across all kinds on here!!!!
nobody's holding a gun to your head to make you listen to them!!!!

That would be a catfish and I've unfortunately had to deal with one of them too recently. You can block a person in the game so that they can no longer chat with you or start a new game with you & then resign the game. I've met some lovely gaming friends via this game, and they may be friendly, but when somebody starts asking lots of personal info right off the bat, its a sign of trouble. Another sign is them giving out personal info without you having asked them & usually claiming to work a high-level job (i.e. CEO) in a foreign country. Both obvious signs of catfishers. Plus if you check by clicking on their chum, it will show if they're new to the game and that's clue #3. Block & resign, and I also tell them that I'm aware that they're catfishing before doing so.
I’ve had someone straight up harass me by changing their username to my name then adding is a whore!!
We should be able to report and remove users like this not just block them!! He played two letter words and passed every other turn.
I also have players who ask and ask about me, then ask me to chat with them on google hangout. When I tell them I’m interested in this app to play not chat and meet people they resign. They too usually play only two to three letter words. Let’s get them off here!!
I, like the rest of you have had similar situations but I’ve gone so far as to say are you another one who is here to make friends/ meet people. Because if you are, I’m not interested. You can play or resign which is it?and keeps asking questions instead of playing the game.The last one I had asked me where I was from and I gave the answer and then told him sorry but I’m not into chatting,here to play the game. Most of them I pretty much tell them if they are looking to meet someone, go to a dating site this is a word game. One asked me where he could go and that’s when I said find it yourself and blocked him. Then of course after that he resigned but it took a while.What a waste of time with these people. And by their stats it didn’t look as though they play very many games either.
all the weird ones call you dear and are widowed who's spouses have died in auto crashes, have 1 kid and work the most bizarre jobs in other countries.this info is given without being asked. iv e just had one markweathers who told me he was working in an oil rig In Ireland and the time was 6.15pm. I live in Scotland and the actual time was 02.15am. BLOCKED
people who are blocked a certain amount of times should be then banned

That's what the blocking feature is for. If someone is offensive, a weirdo or can't respect your wishes if you don't want to chat than block them. Pretty simple really.

This game is world wide, not just the U.S. I have played players from many places. As for me I live in Australia. Some players, both male and female, like to chat others don't.
