Spam in personal mailbox

Not sure who to address this to, but I've just received a mail about transferring money from Ghana. A fairly standard scam but surprising to get it via the forum. The mail is shown as being from Roadman225, though the scam letter purports to be from an Yvonne Massicotte - and Roadman225 is listed as having made no posts. If roadman's PMed me, it would not be surprising if others have also been targetted.

    Jusdging by the number of complaints, lots unfortunately.

    For future reference, PM one of the admin team as soon as you get the message if spam PMs come through again, we may not see topics for a while.

    Or better make a post like this and then report the post so that all Admins see it.

    Why is this happening? Shouldn't security on the Bike Radar server be better than this? Invasion of pirvacy and security ........ not impressed.

    Anyone signing up can do this - we do get many of them with a long list of banned IPs and email addresses. But they move on.
