Thanks for notifying. This was NOT sent by any admin on this forum!

And I'm getting pretty tired of all spam...

Maybe a security hole in phpBB?
I participate in a lot of other forums, including phpBB ones, but none of them send me spam PMs...

These people are manually sending PM's (or maybe use some automated scripts). Does not seem like a security hole (this time).

I had two yesterday along these lines.

I would just ignore them and delete them. Dont in any case click on the links as its just virus spam that will only do harm.

Another one to look out for is a message telling you that you are sending out spam, and that you should change your password.

Message title: "Spam from Your account"

Don't follow the instructions as it takes you to a 3rd party site!
