OFPEC has recently been visited by a couple of spambots which send out Personal Messages at random inviting members to click a link in the PM. If you get one, just delete it. If you're ever asked for personal information or account details at OFPEC, do not respond even if it looks legit - we'll never ask for such information. Instead, contact the site admins and we'll look into it - your security and privacy are important to us.

Meantime we're looking into ways to prevent this sort of thing, but as you can imagine the spammers are always one step ahead. We'll keep you posted.

hehe

Doesn't that defeat the purpose of spamming?  I mean, sure, ok, some kid created a spambot that doesn't spam.

I think that counts as a fail.

(Oh, and thanks bedges - my frail ego is much better now.) Cheesy
