Warning - suspicious private messagges

It has come to my attention that a spammer is sending out strange messages with links to an external site. If you receive a message from a member you don't know and/or the private message seems strange just ignore it and don't click on any links that point outside of USG.

Also, please report the private message to me so I can determing if the member is fake and deal with it.

The recent fake member's name was Eternity and that account has been deleted.

Thanks,

Private message from Eternity

I too received a PM from Eternity and opened the link to find it was a site for Buddhism . Hope this wont lead to a load of junk or worse.
This is the first such message I have received to date.

There's no need to panic, there's no way they can figure out your email address as they have no access to your account (or to my database) all they can do is send out PMs to random members. I've actually clicked on the link myself to see what it's all about and it seems to be a simple traffic generating site. (A site designed just to get traffic to other sites.)

It's certainly not a malicious site as I went there with full virus and various blockers on that would have warned me that it was unsafe.

I know a couple members have decided to leave USG because of this and that's too bad, but like any part of the internet, people should know to be careful. Every website is a potential target by jerks. Facebook get them, Flickr gets them, YouTube gets them (just read their comments section.)

Either on community sites like this or social networking sites as with collecting email, people should know that if something seems suspicious, it probably is.

Eternity !!

Deusex, I too received a message from this 'member', but as it was so strange and totally unconnected with anything on here, I simply deleted it straight away.

Thanks for your continued management of this great site and hoping that it continues until Eternity !!!!!
