Default PM just shows symbols

Got a PM that came through with unreadable symbols. Not sure if it is some kind of spam. Any advice when seeing these?

Just report it. Top right warning triangle.

The mods will look into it.

The PM you are seeing from username "dothotruongyen" is definitely spam and is in Vietnamese.
As mentioned in the posts/threads already posted below, its now OBE as that user and another one who were sending the spam PMs have been removed...

Do NOT click on any links in these PMs and just delete it.

If I recall correctly even mousing over top of some types of links is bad news.

That is specific to links in certain versions of Microsoft PowerPoint. Example read: https://www.pcmag.com/news/354256/ho...ware-infection
