Be careful of SPAM through forum message system now

Recommended Posts

Be wary of messages from someone you aren't familiar with coming through your messages here.  Watch for Micheal02, a new user who is using the message system to spam users. There isn't a way that I could see to report the user right through the message center so I've started it as a topic here just to let the admin know. (Maybe this has been going on already? I've just not received any:

I actually got malware from here.  Every time I'd log on I'd get pop-up ads 3" square on the bottom right of my screen.  It only happened on this site.  I had to "clean" my computer even tho I have Norton.   Can't get away from the stuff.  I too have been getting email from folks (quilters) I don't know.

I received the same message from "Vivian" this morning.  Didn't recognize the name and could tell by the language that it was not authentic.  I reported it to the forum folks earlier this AM.  What a pain!

Same message here.  Virus scan found tracking cookies and an attempted attack this morning too. Not sure if it's related or not.

I got an email from this user too - I didn't click on it because I was nervous to!  Glad to know it's not just me.
