This is in my inbox:





Dunno what it is. How do I get rid of it? I'm not going to open it to find out.

A check of the "member" name comes back with nothing. Yes report before deleting it.

Edlmann,
As others have said, this is a PM.
We are seeing yet another huge surge in spammer traffic, both via PMs and in the Forum Webmaster section (where those who haven't yet been approved to post can post, but only administrative staff can see the posts).
As a reminder, those who have applied for membership on the forum but not yet approved are able to send PMs (just a feature of vBulletin...intended to give these folks the ability to inquire of their status, but they can PM anyone).
And, as Nodak71 states, they will not show up when you search for them (they're not registered members).

As before, if you get a spam PM, please report it immediately, and then delete it.

One clarification...in order to report a PM, you must open it...vBulletin only has the report feature (red/white triangle) available if you open it.
And that's ok if you do...there is no active code whatsoever in the title or viewing of a PM, so simply opening it will do no harm.

NOW...if you do open a PM, do NOT click on anything within the PM, especially any hyperlinks or attachments. Once reported, then delete it.

If you aren't comfortable opening it, simply create a thread in the Forum Webmaster section letting us know you got the PM, the title and most importantly, the username who sent it to you. We'll take care of the rest.

Regards,
Rob
