Hi

I have received two spam PMs:

vamgfysi -- How To Make At Least $100 A Day Online In Your Spare Time -VIDEO PROOF

mayum6ri -- How YOU Will Make $10K or More in ONE Weekend!

Please can these members be banned. If you need the PMs forwarding on before you take action, please tell me who to send them to

I'll be switching PMs off once you have everything you need as I have no need for them but other members may appreciate these spammers being removed from the forum

Thank you

The Captain and Mickey are in discussions about this issue. Hopefully there will be a resolution soon.

If you ever receive a spam PM, please immediately forward it to myself or another mod and we will ban the user ASAP.

I just received the $100 a day spam via PM.

They were all coming from one IP, so blocking that has stopped it for now.

I'm looking at some other measures to help as well.

Thanks folks. Do you still need/want the PMs or can I just delete them now?
