I recently registered with this site and i have just received my first private message.

This turned out to be an image with a link to another forum site. It was sent by a user 'bartinwap' who does not appear to be in the members list.

Surely this is unsolicited junk emailing and nothing to do with the this forum?

Who do I complain to? I don't seem to find any link to the site administrator.

Spam in private messages.

I have already had a similar experience and PMed Tony. I think this is sufficient evidence that we have a spammer on our hands. I will PM Tony again with this confirmation.

Thanks for speaking up and would other members please indicate if they have been spammed as well.

Thanks Guy's,
I hadn't received any of the spam.
Now I will take action to stop it happening again.
