I received that spam also. I sent a PM to Stuart Sweet, informing him about it and to find out how to block it.

This thread should be posted/moved to Forum Support.
Thanks to Google search, people can appear to be smarter than they really are.

Happens all the time, just post in the Forum Support or PM Chris Blount.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I moved this thread to "Forum Support" where we discuss items about the forums itself.

If you receive SPAM PMs, forward them to your friendly neighborhood moderator. We'll take care of them...

Thanks,

Got the same message and deleted it without thinking. Should have PM'd it to a Mod.

Maybe next time, but hopefully not!

One note about this.

When you receive a private message, a notification e-mail is sent from our system with the contents of the private message.

Once we discovered the spammers, we banned their accounts and deleted their private messages. Unfortunately, the e-mails still went out thus making it look like the e-mails came from them through our database.

Not to worry. We simply just cleaned everything out before you had a chance to check your PM box. :)
