Default Re: Scam PMs from new members

I've not seen any such scam PM's myself but having run the email infrastructure for a bunch of rather large businesses in the past, it's good to know that the forum mods are keeping an eye on things.

I have just banned another of these - Saxez75. Thank you to the recipient of two PMs from this member for alerting us.

Please be aware of PMs like this from new members.

Also if you receive any PMs like this please report them to us so we can deal with the sender appropriately.
