I have seen that email domain used before, it must be a common one they use!
thanks for the quick Ban, have deleted message now, i cant imagine they get many people falling for it on these boards!
Unfortunately there is no control who may join the forums but we do monitor new members for risky behaviour, posts, pictures etc. Until someone complains about a private message we don't know anything untoward has happened, so thanks for reporting it.
We could turn off Private Messaging altogether but it was decided that would inconvenience too many regular members. The host (Jive SBS) doesn't have any flexibility on this otherwise we could perhaps restrict new members access to it.
