Urgent: Don't clcik on a PM recently sent to you by Admin1 until we clarify it

Hi Folks,

An unusual Private Message has been sent to some/many members from Admin1.

It includes a link.

Please do NOT click the link until we are able to determine the veracity of the PM.



Thanks,


Mark

Thanks Mark,

Others - I received one of these Private Messages, and I alerted the moderators that I know. The PM from Admin1 stated that the offer was "limited to 20 users, so if you're interested, click this link:" DO NOT CLICK THE LINK!

This is what it said (without the link, which I did not click).......... It was just ill conceived enough, I believed Admin may have actually sent it.

So it has been 10 hours since the moderators were flagged... Was this legit? I could use some tires.

Great! But all I can do is send you a check for $5000. Take $100 for shipping, and refund me the difference ($4900) through Amazon gift cards. I'll send the check to you once I receive the gift cards and tires from you.
