    Default Private Message from Serendipity

    I just received a private message from a new member who goes by the name of Serendipity, location in Wisconsin. Basically, it said, Hi, how are you, gave me a fairly obscure quote and a link to a web site (which, BTW, I did not click on, I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid). It looks pretty darned suspicious to me.

    Anyone else get a PM from this person?

    Default Oh oh!

    Does this mean I'm not really going to be getting 5 millions dollars from a bank in Nigeria? Gosh, guess I was fooled again!

    It's a sad day when the Geocaching site gets hacked and we start to get spam from supposed cachers...

    This user is now banned. Anyone else that got a PM, delete it. Do not open the link.

    Message deleted.

    Chadd, this happens from time to time. It's good to know that the people who run this site are on top of stuff like this. It's annoying, but I'm not going to let it bother me.

    I open them all. Some of the stuff is great. Just seems to take a long time to get here.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    I went and deleted all the PM's he sent to people. No one should have one from him now.
