    Private message spam

    Just received this private message from dogexe:

    Subject line: Hi

    Now you can create mind-blowing artistic images with top secret photography tutorials with step-by-step instructions! Go to the site [link removed]

    -------

    I do not know if this is from dogex or if his account has been hacked, but this needs attention.

    Thanks,

    Ed

    You couldn't do a better favour to the spammer than to divulge his spam-service to the whole forum. Congratulations!

    The best way to deal with PM spam is to report it to the moderators via the triangle icon at the bottom of the message.

    Tom dealt with this instance, and deleted all of the PMs sent from this ID. So, others might have received notifications, but have no message left.

    I received the PM notification, but no PM in my inbox. I suspect the moderators/admins have already taken action.

    I've asked the moderators to remove the link to the spammer's website. It may contain malware - no need to further the potential damage.

    DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK IN THE OP'S POST.
