Direct Spam by PM, PLEASE READ

Hi Guys

Many members will be aware that the QM moderators are fighting a constant battle with spammers, mostly Bots. We delete forum spam and ban the spammers as soon as we can, but now something new is happening. Today I received a spam message by PM which contained a suspicious link. Obviously I banned the culprit but we can't prevent spammers from sending PMs to anybody on the member list. So, please DO NOT CLICK ANY LINKS in PMs you may receive from unknown members. Please just report or forward the message to any QM and we will deal with it, then delete it from your inbox.

Keepin' it clean :cheers:

In answer to Bob's question attached to the bling (thanks Bob). Sorry if my explanation was ambiguous.

Please just report any PM spam you may get or forward it to a QM so we can kick out the spammer. We cannot access your private messages at all. If you want to delete the message you have to do it yourself. You can keep it if you like, just don't click any links :)
