Hi Everyone,

As I'm sure you're all aware by now, we are having an issue with lots of spam being posted on the boards. I checked with our service provider who apparently is having this issue with all of their customers. We are on the list to have an update done to the boards to take care of this issue, but it may be a while until they get to us:) In the mean time, please send me a report on any threads you see that are spam and I will remove them asap. Hopefully this issue will be resolved by tomorrow.

Thank you for your patience.

Sarah

Yuuuuck! :rolleyes:

how does "adultfriendfinder.com" get access to our site? it is offensive...

Now, unless a member that I know is posting, I won't be responding to any new messages.

The emails are legitimate. They are generated automatically from SC. That has nothing to do with the fact that the PMs waiting for you were not legitimate.
It is not about the emails-just do not click on PMs that are from someone you do not know.
Kind of like Caller ID

PMs from someone who has never even posted on SC are a big red flag.

So remember, it is not about emails from SC-those are legit.

Hi Everyone,
I got a few spam messages as well, which I deleted right away. One said, "Did you know your picture is on such and such a website" with a link. I delete those right away (there was a problem with those on Facebook, as well.) The other one said something about claiming a free prize. I also got an email that said something about new forum rules, but when I tried to click on it, it came up with this Canadian pharmacy URL, or something bogus like that. (I don't remember the exact URL, b/c I deleted this message right away). I hope the problem is able to be solved soon!

Forum rules are posted on the website, not emailed to people.
No one has gotten a PM with a link for a couple of days now so he has apparently moved on.

Thanks for the heads-up, Millie. I hope that is the last of his (or her) spam mail.
