    We have had a rash of SPAM messages sent through BYC mail.
    Someone is registering as a member and targeting those they feel would fall for the scam. Obviously it is not working because our members are way too smart.

    If you receive a message, please forward it to one of the staff with full headers and body of the email.

    There is no need to post each one, since we are aware of the problem and are working to find a solution. We will ban anyone who sends these messages.

    Thanks.

    Ya' know, it's bad enough that they waste my time with this 'stuff' in my inbox, but to assume that I'm dumb enough to fall for it?

    :mad: Hmph. Dumb butts.

    Thank to you and speckledhen for taking care of it.. [​IMG]

    Whenever i've posted on recycler.com to sell my roosters, i get a rash of these, and then the ones claiming to want to buy my pet but they need all my vital information first.

    I have gotten one. The user name is Rjang. I don't know how to forward it to the mods, though. It's that retarded Nigerian money laundering scheme again.

    That is one that has been banned already, but I think may come back with a new address.
