My suggestion:

Take a screenshot of the message he sent you and send/report it to one of the Forumotion Staff.

I just had someone log in, using another members details. As luck had it I was logged on at the time. And knew this particular members was unable to login. I manage to obtain a screen shot of where the perpetrator is located. I then banned the IP Address. I have also put out a global asking all members to change their passwords. Is there anything else I should do to prevent this happen again? Any replies welcome.

To prevent those spammers from getting into the admin panel, instruct your other admins to change their passwords to a more complex one, try also hiring more moderators to clean up the spam messages and keep banning them until they stop, that's the only way. Once the forum encounters a loss of data, access the utilities.
