Nigerian spam private message

Postby GeoffL » 9 Jun 2007, 9:02am

Today I got a new private message. On opening it I found it was from user "helena" subject "From Helena Lambert.i need your help" with a postal address in the Ivory Coast and an invitation to respond by email to a yahoo.fr address.

Anyone else get one of these, and can the board mods do something about it?

TIA,

Geoff

Sorry about the 419 Nigerian scam messages.
"Helena" has been banned.

I will investigate further to see whether this sort of rubbish can be stopped.

Cheers
Graham
