Spam Warning

Spam Warning

Postby LN Strike Eagle on Wed 29 Apr 2009, 5:10 pm

Had a few people contact us to say that they've been contacted via PM with dodgy looking links from a member called "profilicus". This member has been banned, but if anyone finds a PM in their inbox, delete it.

Had two spammers evading the filter this week - I'll get Pete to take a look ASAP. In the meantime, be vigilant and report anything you think looks suspect and we'll investigate.

Regards,
Dan

Same thing has been happening over on the Ford Capri forum I'm a member of - I think the guy had the same username too... :question:

Nothing to do with UKAR, but I've suddenly started getting a massive increase in viagra and various other porn e-mails this past week or two, so someone has obviously gotten hold of my e-mail address who I would rather didn't. Thing is I use this e-mail address for almost everything, so it would be such a hassle to make a new account that I really can't be bothered - I'd rather just wade through the spam.

Just a suggestion; I do realise that Spam is extremely rare on here.

Could a restriction be made to only allow the PM facility to members who have made a certain number of posts. Although this would compromise the amount of users who would recieve the updates PMs.

Any Spam E-Mail's, or dodgy ones for that matter are automatically removed by my internet provider. (AOL). Used to hate those pop up's though. :grin:
