Thanks for your input however i belong to a few fourms and this is the first tme i have recieved a message like this.
It was sent within minutes of joining this forum.
I dont do online shopping and the fourms i belong to are very specific.
May be it is possible somplaces you may have shared your mail id and may be it is a coincidence that you receieved a mail after joining here. I will suggest you to please delete the mail
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.
That user is now banned and the account disabled. Sorry for the inconvenience.

You're welcome and good luck.
Ex_Brit already caught and banned this user (nina). I guess you were unlucky.
The question about Private Message filtering has come up before but I think only the Board Administrator can give you a definitive answer.
It's either off or on and April the Board Admin has to do that, but the better way would be to only allow people with X number of posts to use the system. Unfortunately Jive SBS the board software is severely short on choices in this regard.
'If it had been my choice I would never have used the software in the first place as it's sadly lacking in many aspects.
