You should have received an email from the board telling you to delete this as it isn't genuine. The only reason you wouldn't have got that email is if you checked the box not to be contacted when you signed up.

If the user isn't part of the Administrator or Moderator group and they are saying something like that it is spam.

Thanks

Please ignore it, it is clearly fake since the user does not belong to the admin group. We are doing our best to cut these out, you will never receive a PM like this from us so please delete it!

I've decided to add a 1 post restriction on using the PM system, should stop this happening hopefully.

Will also mean people will hopefully say hello before using the classifieds section and not contributing.
