PMs and Spam

*Update*

 

Hey guys and gals...just a heads up...

 

If you get an PM in your inbox with a link to "New Forum Rules," DO NOT CLICK IT. It appears to just be a spam link, NOT A VIRUS. However, even though this link appears not to be a virus, it's always good policy not to click on any links in any email or private message that appears to be suspicious. Any major site update, rule change, etc. will be posted in The Newswire. And if you ever receive any other PMs that look suspicious in the future, please report that to the staff ASAP.

 

Thanks!

On behalf of the staff I sincerely apologize for this happening. We had no control over it - obviously some douchebag registered and sent it out in a PM, it's probably a virus so don't click it. Sorry for that happening. It's hard for us to control but I'll see what I can do about it.

Here's what needs to happen...

 

If you receive a PM that looks suspicious, please PM me and let me know. Forward the message to me along with the user's name and the site staff will resolve it. Thanks for your assistance on this matter and again, we apologize for the inconvenience.

Does not seem to be any kind of virus. Anyway I clicked it, and just got a Viagra site.

 

Kaspersky Antivirus didn't tell me anything about virus/trojan or phishing site.

So, it looks to be an ordinary spam link.

:) im smart, i know only a core staff member would be sending PMs around to people about changing rules and stuff :D .. and there would be no additions to the core staff without posting on the main page anyway i wouldnt think

You've missed alot then apparently...
