Private Message : But none there

Post by G.A.MACKINLAY » Wed May 06, 2009 8:15 pm

Sir,
I received a message from Forum Administration stating I had a private message from "profilicus". However, when I looked on the file nothing there!
Any ideas?
Yours,
G/.

He may have deleted it before you had the chance to read it.

HI, I've also received a message from this member and I had no new message in my private box. Then I looked after this member into the listing of member, and he does'nt exsit.
the message received is:

"Hello spitfire220,

on "Feldgrau.net" with the following subject:

It sounds as if that might have been someone who joined to spam, but was deleted before he could accomplish any real harm.

Yes indeed. We have to delete 50-60 of these every day now. Sadly "profilicus" got through the net on a PARTICULARLY active day. He has been deleted.

Anyone who ever gets a PM from "Forum Adminstration", please check with the Site Admins - Tom, Jason, or myself.
