    We don't actually - PM's are exactly what they say - Private Messages.

    The best advice I can give you is to delete it without opening it, and let us know who the offending member is and we'll ban then (chances are they're already banned).

    I had one of these and ignored it. Well actually I forgot about it as when it came I had not been on the site for months!

    Hi just to let you know I have received one of these messages fromm a johnnyoef, it says banned by his name so I'm assmuing you already know about it. I was trying to figure out a way of showing you the message without spreading it but couldn't! Anyway I'll dump it out of my inbox, thanks for the warning!

    Just had one from KendrickWarren but now banned. Unfortunately the links were clicked as they led to the mouthpiece. Any idea how to clear from an idiot!! Remembered the warning too late.

    Virus alert - pm from carlosdevil

    If you receive a private message from carlosdevil regarding spam and how your account will be deleted unless you click on a link to check your computer, do not click on the link-it is a virus.

    Thanks for the heads up. As much as we try to keep on top of these blighters, one occasionally manages to sneak through while we're not looking. :( This one now banned.

    Indeed, I got the spam message too, and immediately banned the user.
    (together with another similar user that had just registered...)

    Hello Rob,

    Don't worry Rob. As long as you don't click the link in that message, everything should be ok. CarlosDevil is a spammer himself, and his account has been deleted.

    Um I think I got one from CarlosDevil, saying I was sending spam? So I wasn't meant to click on the link. It's all in like spanish or something. RIght I'll just close it. So am I not sending spam then?

    I hope ou didn't get a virus from clicking the link. Did you get a "threat blocked" warning from our virusscanner or something like that?

    I don't think I did. Nothing has happened and no 'threat blocked' warning either.

    If you notice anything strange (eg abnormally slow reaction times, ...), you could maybe scan your pc for viruses and spybots.
