    Default Anyone else get a strange PM?

    From LadyAdministrator?

    I drop-kicked it immediately, but thought it was VERY strange.

    There's another thread that started yesterday on this. Apparently spammers have found a way into the PMs. I haven't gotten one of these but apparently a number of others have.

    A number of people received these messages over the last few days, a couple users forwarded them to me. Bill and I talked about this, and as a result, he posted a sticky about it here.

    Basically, if you receive one, don't click on any links, and don't respond. Feel free to forward the message to one of the moderators - Bill O, crudio, or myself (h2oeco) so that we can deal with it.

    Thanks.

    Thanks to all.

    Didn't look in the rght place for that info ( head/palm). I have a hot finger for deleting stuff I'm suspicious about. No harm no foul here.

    I was wondering how someone on a forum knew I had a virus on my PC. I was ready to be impressed. Alas...

    I got one too. Knew it looked a little suspicious, so I just deleted it.
