I just received a possible spam PM from a member giving no details, but requesting I send her an email for further information.

Until we ascertain if it is indeed spam, please do not reply to any of these PM's.

Anyone who received these PM's, please post here in this thread.

I have placed a temporary ban on this member until we determine what is what.


Thank you.

I got the same one a little while ago, and forwarded it to George. Waiting to hear back on what to do with it.

Alan, I got mine at 11:10 pm CST.

Just delete it, or hold it, doesn't matter. Just don't reply to it. Lord knows what is being sold.

Maybe she knows we're Canadians and too smart for her diabolical plans.

I cut down the limit for new members to send pms to a max of 2 people a day. What is bad is it is easy to keep the spam bots out but when it is real live people spamming and they can work around the system there isn't nothing you can do and it isn't fair to block entire ip address blocks from know spamming countries as you might have legitimate people or members from those areas.
