Solved New member reporting spam

Post by jayjay23 on January 1st 2012, 9:30 pm

I have not even gone live yet and one of the three or four people who signed up are reporting spam issues.

Can anyone give me any advice on what is happening?

He said he signed up and was duped into opening a spam pm.
He then sent me this pm

"Don't know if this will work but I've just clicked on a separate spam and copied its address being -
http://prizes.co.uk/landing.html?p=40289...bPubId=12450247"

I also have the source code of the spam message if anyone wants to have a look at that please?

Big help needed....

(Here is the start of the source code from the email he got)

Does the private message not have a sender? Does it not show who send it?

That looks like the source code from a forum.
