Spam/hacked account?

I got this PM the other day...haven't responded as it looks a bit phishy:

Your cars
Good morning!

My good friend (Auotoscribe)was kind enough to let me peruse some of his friends on this site (and use his sign on) for folks to feature as our Power Profile owners on FordMuscle magazine and he mentioned yourself as a great choice.

If you are interested in taking part please contact me @ gallop66@aol.com
I'd love to hear more about yourself and your Fords!

Thanks!

J.P. Emerson

Not sure if it's legit or not?

You should have been able to see who's account it was sent from. If not it seems someone was able to force a script to run on the forum without being a member. I've been getting a lot of notices of people trying to run scripts on my forum recently as well.

Found him in the system by the email. Going to let the mods know, probably do a temp ban (or maybe permanent) and definitely send them a warning.

Thanks guys. When it comes to the PM system, only way we can catch those sending out spam is if it's reported. Or they send the spam to us too

Maybe someone should have notified an administrator the intention before the action took place so that this could have been avoided. Now some that may have had a chance to have their story told may have missed out.

Hey Guys,

this was a misunderstanding on our part. we're still investigating on this and we will get back to you once I figure out what's happening. For now, please ignore the PMs until further notice.
