private Message Removal
 
Just had a private message to me. It was from someone calling themselves charity, could anyone tell how to delete it? I didn't reply, seems like a scam.

People PM members all the time with junk. Yes its spam.

Delete the message or stop PM-ing?
To stop PM-ing, go to USERCP at the top, EDIT OPTIONS, uncheck Private Messaging. Or, remain checked but then check "only admin can PM"

Same here. You'll need to log in to the full BBF website to delete PM's. Can't do it on mobile version.

By the way it is spam, and, sort of off topic (stepping up on soapbox) this is a reason not to post your PIN (now stepping off soapbox).

I have also had this sent to me, so you are not alone in it. Take the advice above and your problem will be solved.

vBulletin has a feature that allows a board admin to bulk-delete every sent message by a spammer. I used it on my board when a spambot sent a couple thousand lewd PMs.

I understood it was a member name charitywilton86.
I can't find any form or that name. Could someone post the exact user name here?

Re: private Message Removal
 
Username adosa

PM subject charitywilton86@hotmail.com

... Also a funny thing, I'm set to get email alerts for PM's, but I didn't get one for that one.

Brace yourself. You haven't been around. It can get creepier.

Seriously, I used to have my yahoo messenger link in my profile and my PIN in my signature, for a few years, and then the spammers seemed to have found the forum. So no more. That's why I say don't post your PIN. If you want to do it, put it in profile or signature where you can remove it. (Now down off soapbox again.)
