Received a strange email this morning with a link to click, which I knew not to click on. Email has been deleted.

Came from a mrhell from Zimbabwe.

It was addressed to my username, Kansas Poster, at my email.

Wonder how they linked my username and email?

You have already provided your email on "Options and Settings." They don't need to see it.

Nope. Your example sends an email from the CMP. Just tested it again.

The one I got from Zimbabwe came direct to my email from the bad guy.

They automatically spoof / edit the header so you don't know a source.

Exclamation Beware

Reference the sticky in the Garand section by my fellow mod (see 1st link below), as well as that of one or our members (see 2nd link), if you get a PM from a user going by "James3" "gunsgoner12" "kthom116" or "jhall5754" soliciting the sale of firearms and/or parts...do NOT respond!

http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=196715

http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread....95#post1513595

This goes beyond the spam PMs mentioned previously...these are outright scams! These folks are actively "casing" forums and targeting folks with specific items they are wanting to buy.
Report the PM to us immediately if you get one!

The verbiage of the PM will be similar to one reported to us tonight:

Yugo m70b1 parts kit

contact me for pictures and details,james_honeycutt3@aol.com




All of these users have been banned...but, it can and probably happen again.

I got one from gunsgoner as well. He replied to an old WTB posting. I figured with a brand new join date, no posts, and no user info I would ignore it.
