Russian Scamers sending Private Messages.

  1. #1

    Is this person a spammer?

    I received a private message from evzdtqin (an apparent member of your forums) saying that I was chosen to participate in the closed beta for Hitman. But I had to complete an offer for one of those online scams about answering questions and completing this or that survey....mostly just a waste of time but you do get awarded with a flurry of unwanted emails....lol! Regardless please check this person out and maybe remove them from your forums....

    Hi, I have just got the same message, but how is this possible when this member is already banned from the forum

    Hi,

    What's the time of when the message was sent to you? It's above the username of the sender of the PM.

    Most likely the message was sent before I banned the spammer. The title of "Banned" is added to the banned user that means it is also shown under the username in messages/post that were made before the user was banned.

    Regards,
