Every now and then, some unscrupulous types will sign up to boards like ours and send out spam private messages.
In most cases, they will have a very sad and convincing sounding story, and will ask you to send them an email to “chat” some more.
Please ignore and delete these members. While our site technology can (and does) prevent a lot of these accounts from being able to do damage, some do make it through. Never click links from then in their messages and don’t reply to anything they post. As soon as we see this type of activity, the member is blocked then removed.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t.
