Spam as pm?
« on: February 08, 2010, 08:41:12 AM »
This morning I was sent a private message from a user named 'ForumTeam' telling me to click a verification link, as they had detected my computer had a virus.

Upon further inspection, ForumTeam was registered today and is from the US.

Needless to say, I didnt click the link.

Other people may have received this private mesage too, so just warning one and all!

Cheers Damo,

I hadn't received anything so I wasn't aware but I've banned them now.
