I would like to take this opportunity of reminding all our members of the following from our Guidelines:
"Private Messages (PMs) between users are enabled on these forums; however, please be aware that scammers may register with this board and effectively try to groom victims using this method. You can of course also send private messages to administrators or moderators; if you feel that you have received any PMs that are abusive or insulting, or any that are trying to obtain your personal information in any way, please report this to the administrators or moderators."
We would like to remind you that while we are here to give you information and assistance within the forums, once you take conversations into Private Messaging, we have no oversight over them.
On the forums, we can quickly catch scammers and/or spammers and other offending elements - and not only remove them, but also warn all of you about them. With Private Messages, we do not have that facility, and thus we'd like to remind you that it would be a good idea to exercise extreme caution when using this particular forum feature.
Should you receive any questionable Private Messages, please do not hesitate to contact a Moderator, an Administrator or a Support Group member to request assistance. You can view the usergroups (including the above mentioned groups) by clicking on this link
Thanks and safe net surfing!
