    Default Phishing via PM (username 'genus')

    Just got the following blatant phishing PM. Has anybody else received something like this?

    I’m having problems setting up an E682 and don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’m using x lights and all pixels. I'm really new at this. I had been using animated lighting and changed. I will send some images so you can see what I have plugged in. Really appreciate the help. Don't know how to use this page. Send me an emai so I can send images.

    Thank you

    Seems innocent until you figure out that the user (genus) has their profile blocked, so you can't easily see when they joined etc. But I can tell that they've never posted on this site before.

    Can we perhaps disallow users with private profiles from sending PM's? And also, maybe just undo all of the messages that this user has sent to others before that person/bot leaks out everybody's emails.

    If this person is really up to no good,it's only a matter of time before Brian bans his IP address.

    The user id seems to be 31547, as clicking on the name in the PM goes to:

    http://doityourselfchristmas.com/for...hp?31547-genus


    Could he have created a user, sent the PM, then deleted or renamed the user?
