View Full Version : Spam via PM!

A few of us have been getting spam messages sent directly to us via PM.

If anyone gets one of these please give us the name of the spammer so that we can ban them (you can post the names here). You are advised not to follow the links sent in these messages - they may be benign but who wants to chance it!

This is a legit concern so no silliness in this thread please.

We're working on rectifying the situation and appreciate your patience.

Thanks.

I feel so unloved by spammers.

I've seen this happen on two other forums that I post on which are also run by vBulletin...and in one of those the spammers were sending malware through the PMs, do to anyone who gets one, don't open the PM.

We're doing our best to root these bots out before they become members, but there may be some out there and leaking through.

Best advise, if you get anything from someone you don't know or see posting on here, ignore and toast it. Just like you would with a strange email.

Another fake "spam detected, let me clean it for you!" scam.

Then they install their own virus, and pretend to clean it for you at a charge.

There is an automated way to do this before they post their messages. I will see if I can share this software with you. We use it at the Oilers site.
