Private Message Spam

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks,

Many of you reported receiving spam Private Messages (PMs) from a user called 'justrakop.' I received it too and it contains a link to an unsafe website.

We've deleted this user and are taking steps to upgrade the forum to help prevent PM spamming in the future.

NOTE: As a rule, it's important to be very careful when opening attachments and following links in Private Messages and E-mail. If you don't know the sender, it's probably best not to follow the link or open any attachments.

Thanks,

Eric

. . . taking steps to upgrade the forum to help prevent PM spamming in the future.

Hi Folks,

We've patched the forum to help prevent PM spamming.

The forum now has Private Message Flood Control, which simply means that users must wait 3 minutes between sending Private Messages.

Thanks for understanding and being part of the redpowermagazine.com community!
