    I received the private message from san123 (below). It's obviously fraudulent. Can anyone get rid of this user?

    Thanks!

    Q_Goest, if your report the PM then the moderators will have a look at it.

    Hi Mayday. I don't want to simply report this and have the member (who's not posted anything here) deleted. I want to discourage anyone, including san123, from wasting anyones time with fraudulent messages. If I keep it a secret, it doesn't deter anyone from doing this, they simply get a new name and send the same message, or a similar one to other people.

    Phishing can't be detered simply by deleting one username.

    Thanks Q_Goest, hopefully this will encourage others to report Private Message scam and spams.

    Member has been banned.
