Garbage in my message box

Post by wooden nickel » Tue Sep 17, 2019 7:33 am

I just deleted a message in my message box without reading it . The title was gobbledygook and I didn't recognize the author. Have the spammers upped their game or has someone let their hamster play with the computer?

I got it also, reported to the Mods and banned him.

Unlike yours, the title of mine began with the letters "pfc".

I didn't copy it down but that looks like the junk I got. First time I ever got spammed in my message box. Kinda surprised me.
