PM Sent From User Serendipity2

Hi everyone,

Just an FYI... if you received a PM from this user Serendipity2, just delete it. It is spam and the link the user included may be harmful (I don't ever click on links sent to me by people I do not know).

This is prime reason why we don't make our membership list available. Our tech team discovered she sent the same message to about 90 users. If the membership list was viewable, the potential for damage would have been far greater.

Anyhow, Serendipity2 has left the building (i.e. I banned her).

Happy Tuesday
Yung

Hmm, I got one yesterday, and read her message, but don't remember a link on it. I hope just reading the pm didn't open anything. I deleted it without replying. What made me wonder about it was she said "hi, I'm new to the site". but her post total was zero. My nightly virus check didn't show anything, so I guess I'm safe.

Yeah I got one and of course ignored and deleted. Her email might as well said - if you want a virus, click here.

I ignored it, but there was also no link. Anti-virus didn't pick anything up.
