Complaint regarding a forum using false sign-ups

Post by ErikMouse on January 1st 2012, 11:19 am

I am not sure where to file this under, but I would like to register a complaint regarding http://bowser123sforum.forumotion.co.uk/ about the use of false sign-ups in attempt to get members since there is only one member on that forum, whoever Admin is. This is the e-mail complete with headers in the spoiler. If this was the wrong place, then I would need to find out where to register the complaint with then.

Its a system generated email i think which is sent because you were inactive & the admin chose to send it. You can delete yourself from that forum, if you registered.

Possibly, some user used your email address to register on that forum. Its not there anymore.
If you get anymore such emails, you can come back.
