I have receieved reports of Private Message spamming recently. One account was created for the sole purpose of solicitation via PMs, and this was reported. The user has been dispatched and the normal course of action taken.

Apparently the newest form of spamming for forums are users creating accounts for the sole purpose of sending PMs soliciting items they are trying to sell or promoting/luring visitors to thier sites. Some of these sites have been known to incorporate malicious code or scripting in an attempt to glean personal information.

Please do not respond to these solicitations! The forums cannot offer protection against these solicitations and there is no way the site can help you in the event a transaction goes sour. DO NOT follow any links offered by unknown sources or members you are not familiar with!

If any of you receive Private Message spam from any users please notify me immediately via private message and if possible quote the message you received or forward it to me. I will need the user's ID so please include this. I will address the issue promptly and decisively.

It's a big cyberworld out there, so beware.
