Postby muminvic on Thu Feb 23, 2012 10:24 am

Oh goodness. I just joined last night and all ready a nice message from a "member" here. What should I do with it? I won't respond to them of course,but who do I report it to?

You have received a new message from 'mildred4love' on
kidsinvictoria.com:

Hello My Dear,

profile here at (kidsinvictoria.com) and I really want to have a good
friendship with you. Beside i have something very important to disclose

Justin, the KIVADMIN addressed this in a post yesterday I believe it was. It is spam, and unfortunately seeing as this is a public forum it can happen. Ignore it, do not reply and it is a very common format for spam. In my 7 years on here that is the first time it has happened to me.
