  • Spammer on PM!!!

    I received a message from a person claiming to be an Admin. He sent me message linking me to one of those bogus anti-virus sites.

    The original message: "(removed message, thanks for reporting - ADM)"

    Thanks for the heads up.

    If anyone else has received the same PM, please delete it straight away.

    PM spambots are a lot trickier to deal with, so if anyone else starts receiving random PMs from strangers, please let us know.

      I got the message too. The account that sent it is Admin&Moderator and is online at the moment.

        Yup, I got it. It was about 30% convincing. Enough to make me log in here. But a second read and it was obviously bogus.

                    I've renamed his nickname to "Hi, I'm a Spammer!" so hopefully that sends out a message to anyone who received his PM

                        I've got no spam. See, even spammers don't like me.

                        Just out of interest, is it possible and/or probable for a bot to send PM's? I'd thought that'd be a little too complicated for them - so is it a real person spamming?

                          Same here...

                          I'm not that stupid to press any url the spam bots send.

                            We're pretty sure it's a bot. A real person would probably go for the standard thread post.
