Denise has been posting spam for a while now. Despite flagging, she doesn't seem to have been banned, so what's the point of reporting spam?

Noted and the pictures made my angry that electronics from the Western World are being shipped overseas.
This is deplorable for the people living there.
Now I will check to see what they are doing with the electronic dump off sites here in Alberta. I was under the impression that they take them apart as some pieces are worth money.
Thanks Judy for the awareness.

Noted this has been going on for years and years have seen before on TV. Thank you for bring it into the spot light again because out of sight out of mind. No one appears to care about these people who have no voice or choice.
