Receiving spam messages [SOLVED]

Hi,

We apologize for this problem!

There were 2 new spammers who joined 2 hours ago: "barbara2" and "alina". They used the forum messenger to send about 180 spam messages to other members. They didn't get access to your email addresses.

I banned these users and we'll disable the messenger for new members to avoid this situation in future.

We are being attacked with spam bot, linking to porn. I delete each as they come in,  but I will miss some. Thank you for reporting it, keep doing it and do not assume that someone else will.

This is due to Facebook’s stupid new group rules on auto approval.

Those spammers could send only PM messages throught the forum server. They don't know real email addresses of recepients. The forum and its database were not hacked.

These spammers have abused the possibility to send personal messages to other members through the forum. 

Now new member cannot use the messanger during some time and a number of sent messages during a day will be restricted for all members (probably 10 should be enough?).

Hi Rosy

Click on your Messages icon at the top of the screen.

Now click on Go to Inbox at the bottom of the list.

Use the tickbox to select the offending message (without opening it)

Click on the Delete icon.

Problem solved hopefully.

Regards

Hi Wideangle, Managed to delete it but not sure I did it the way you said. Maybe someone will post a step by step instruction with pictures? I can't as I have no messages now. If someone sends me a message I will post pictures of how I did it.

Rosy Thinking about that, just wideangle send me a message or I may be inundated.:o

Rosy.
