Hi to all members :)
If you should receive any PMs that are SPAM ( in any way inappropriate, solicitations, advertisements etc etc....) please would you forward them to me or admin or any of the other mods

i just want to be sure members know that we have not had any reports of spam pm's. so you don't have to turn off your pm's. just be aware if you get pm's from somebody you don't know and it has links, don't click on them.

a big thank you to those members who are reporting these kinds of Private Messages to us
PLEASE forward or post if you are receiving PMs from members that have links to websites or advertisements etc.....these are usually members who have zero posts and are just PMing others to send traffic to these sites. frequently the sites have absolutely nothing to do with the medical issues etc here at NeuroTalk
I received one this morning from someone with zero posts. Do you know about this one? :confused:

BJ...could you forward it to me please...just open the PM and bottom right of it you will see the "forward" button....just click that and then forward it to Chemar
02-04-2007, 01:11 PM
I just got one too and will forward.
02-04-2007, 01:34 PM
thank you soooo much BJ and Shelley and others who have just forwarded PMs to me:)
yes, the ones you have forwarded me are a spammer who has been "working" here via PM and is now banned.
I really appreciate your help in keeping our community safe and free of harrassment of this kind:grouphug:

Hi Chemar - just forwarded you a PM I received. Must be the same person, had 0 posts.

thanks diana....got it and the "member" has been suspended!
there is more than one person doing this kind of thing....not just on this forum but on others too.....they figure we can delete their SPAM on the boards, but not catch them in PMs..........
hah! they dont realise what diligent members we have who report the PMs to us:Thanx:
