Can this User please also be deleted?

I posted that Information also yesterday in our Message Board at www.seti-germany.de and informed my Team Mates about the Spammer. One of my Team Mates also got such a Message from a "linda" but via another Channel.

Did anyone else get such a Message or am i targetted by an Idiot?


Thanks and Best Regards

I got one a few minuters ago from linda121

http://boinc.gorlaeus.net/show_user.php?userid=30456

Don't anybody fall for it, don't try to contact the email address as once they get your address you get tons of spam. If they get your bank account number they will clean your acount out of funds.

It's an old email scam, you're supposed to forward the email to the FBI but I don't know how you would report PM postings.

Just delete the message
