Thread: Spam in my PM box!!! Moderators alert!!!

    Spam in my PM box!!! Moderators alert!!!

    I just wanted to make the moderators and others aware that a member named Daniela is spamming PM messages for Viagra and other drugs from a Canadian website. It's bad enough to get this in my business and personal email but this is just too much.

    Daniela had no posts and must be a new member.

    Can these messages be blocked?

    I have the same problem. First PM here is spam.
    Glad I didn´t follow the link though.
    Can it be blocked?

    Cheers, Zwicko

    Another member reported the violation a couple of days ago, and "Daniela" was immediately banned.

    The "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page can be used to report this sort of thing.

    Thanks! I don't think any of us would want to see this get started.

    Maybe this Lady should try to sell other products here to get more success.
    I would prefer fresh film for 1/2 price ( payment 99 days after receiving)

    Slightly (or, errrr, extremly) off topic:

    Damn. I thought she might be interested. I should ask PayPal for my $70 back.
    Just kidding of course.

    You mean Viagra is not a brand of 4x5 transparency film?
