    Seeing as a couple of people have tried to help, I won't just delete this one.

    Guys, it's a spammer.

    One that wants you to use their Taxis.

    I'm wondering how many forums they have done this on, and how many fake calls for Taxis will now be placed

    tis odd for spam not to provide the name of their company. That was the only thing which made me think that maybe it was tru.

    They did, but I removed it. But our new user permissions prevent posting of links, and this type of post is one of the reasons why.

    They targeted some number of different forums. The same post can be found on car forums, insurance forums, financial service forums and so on. The logic seems to be "any forum they can".
