    what's up with this? PRIVATE MESSAGE SPAM ALERT

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by ronmatt, Feb 12, 2010.

    I got this 'private message' which doesn't make a lick of sense to me...See attachments. I'm on a Mac. How am I getting PC virus warnings?

    It's called spam, Ron. These are fraudulent messages sent by malevolent internet pests. For your own safety, DO NOT CLICK ON ANY LINKS OR BUTTONS THAT MAY BE CONTAINED IN THES MESSAGES.

    If you or anyone else receives such a message, and the originator has not yet been banned, use the Report Private Message icon [​IMG] at the right end of the header bar at the top of the message.

    The moderator (the REAL ones) will receive a notification and we will ban the spammer as soon as possible.
