    Beware odd private messages!!

    Hello all,

    I've just received a private message from someone called "tinhthienthu". The message appeared to contain links to all sorts of sites, including porn, gambling, videos, gaming, etc. I didn't open it, but deleted it straight away as I suspect it's some kind of trojan horse type thing, and if I'd clicked on any of the links I fully expect that I would have downloaded a virus.

    So just be aware that this person "tinhthienthu" seems to be sending out random spam messages.

    How do you know what it contained when you didn't open it?

    Bob T,

    I received a message in my email inbox telling me that I'd received a private message on the forum. In the email it showed what was in the private message, so I just went to the forum private messages and deleted it.

    Peter,

    I've just sent a PM to Vince and asked him to look into it.
