I know you are busy as your PM box is full. I have not opened the PM's and have not deleted them as of yet.

As always, thanks in advance.
Regards, Mike

Mike/Rob,
Yes, y'all were one of many who reported them, or emailed/PM'd me. Which is why my inbox was full!
Thank you and no bother at all...as mentioned in the thread in Ask Each Other, I have removed two different users for the spam PMs, dothotruongyen and chayngaydisontungmp3 (along with 4 associated usernames).

Once a user has requested access and completes the automated portion of the process to confirm email address, they are able to send PMs (but not post). Simce they are not yet approved, its why you can't look them up.

As mentioned before, do not click on or open ANY hyperlinks within these PMs, just as you shouldn't in any spam emails received.

As Rob mentions, good policy just to delete them.

Many thanks for taking the time to let us know,
Rob

Default They may be getting a little more sophisticated

I got one from dothotruongyen this morning and everything was in english and told me my inbox was full, which it was. I didn't click on the link. I hope most are now informed of this scam or whatever it is.

Add me to the list of getting one. I had google translate one of the pages and it seemed to be an invitation to visit Hanoi in part.

Wow.

On the russian ones; I thought the CMP had a filter to block any non US IP address, or were these rascals posting from here inside the country???

Just got another one yesterday, a PM in Vietnamese from quocanh17051982.

I did not open it and deleted it. Just a heads up.

Note: Notified Moderators as well.
