Has anyone else got this spam in their private messages?

And MORE importantly HOW did it get into a private message?


Good Morning,

How are you today? you probably be wondering who am I and why you received this email from me, I am Mr. BC Greyling, a managing director and head of international private banking division of Standard Chatered Bank-CI. I am contacting you concerning the funds - $18.1 Million Dollars (Eighteen million one hundred thousand united states of America Dollars) I divert representing 1.2 Percent of our Investors Excess Return Capital Funds which i secured in our Magellan Trust Funds Account whereby anyone with a surname as you can be presented to claim the funds. I would respectfully request that you keep the contents of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a result of this mail. Contact me through this email (greylingbc@rocketmail.com) for more details because I desire we work together to claim on the money as I will simply nominate you as the beneficiary, If you will not work with me or see this mail as a spam, scam or hoax let me know so that I can proceed to look for someone else otherwise contact me via the above email address for more details.
Sincerely,
Mr. BC Greyling
email:greylingbc@rocketmail.com



They had to join the forum to be able to do this and IMHO need to be kicked off ASAP!!

on edit: I now have received 2 private messages from the same sender.


We must be willing to get rid of the life we've planned,
so as to have the life that is waiting for us.

Just give him your full name, D.O.B., SS# and bank account #, you'll soon be rich.
Seriously, did you contact a Moderator?

I am sure it got into a private message by this guy just clicking on member's names and using the 'send private message' option. He's been a busy fella this morning. I got three in a row from him all within a minute apart of each other.

Yea, I hope he is dealt with asap as he is abusing the PM feature and SPAMMING everyone.

The person that sent the messages, registered as a member and was able to send private messages, like any other member.
