    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)"

    Whew, I almost made a thread about that. It really had me concerned for a second, I didn't come back to this site for a few days after seeing that message. Glad to hear it's a fake.

    I got a PM but, I think it was in Finnish or what not (lol) and I have no idea what it says.

    Must have been spam, the guy has zero posts.

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

    Same here...

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

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

    Yeh I got the same thing, funny since I haven't logged on to the forums for awhile. Sent a PM to let Morry know too.
