*NOTICE!* - Recent spam AND scam PMs received
 
Good afternoon all.
We've had a couple reported spam PMs sent to us, as well as receiving an e-mail about it.

The user in question, adamasfrancesay6843, who sent the spam PMs has been banned.

HOWEVER, since the PM they sent contained hyper-links of an unknown nature, please....if you have a PM from this person, do NOT open that PM, and especially do NOT click on any links in the PM.
Delete it immediately!

Any problems, please let us know.

Happy Labor Day weekend,
Rob

There Good at it also who ever it is,after i got Hit went threw all Kinds of procedures with my banks security dept,had my card disabled acct put on Confidential Status where i cant even access it basically the Banks security Dept takes your acct over a week after all of these procedures,They got one past security procedures,So that's 3 Free Plane Tickets now from Great Britain to Turkey plus about $80.00 each in currency exchange fees,Thankfully that $3,500.00 all came out of the banks pockets as there Security Dept allowed the transfers to go threw,or they had sophisticated enough software it beat the banks security as my Turned off card was used successfully by them again. Be careful out there.

I've received several spam PM's lately. I will post the user names when I get more.

I have been getting spam PMs lately as well. The messages are in Russian and the sender is different all the time but is something similar to: nohnigeerqn88

Thanks to all for bringing this up, and/or reporting the PMs. That user, and the 18 other alias usernames he/she used have been banned.

For those that used the Forum Webmaster section to report this, I have replied to all posts there on this subject.

As a side note, NEVER click on or open any links contained within any kind of spam PM!! Most likely, they are malicious links and contain viruses, Trojans, etc!
If you are unsure of a link and/or user, don't open it!

Any further issues/problems, let us know.

Regards,
Rob
