Has anyone got a personal message from divina4ulove2@yahoo.co.uk? Looks like spam or a phishing attempt.

It reads:
Hello ,
sorry for interrupting you as i don't know how you will feel if i tell that i am been attracted by your profile here on this (www.yiiframework.com) site and i will like you to be my very good friend,but i am sorry that i have not upload my picture here because i will not like to be disturb by someone who i don't know and i promise to give you my picture as soon as you contact privately on my email address which is........ divina4ulove2@yahoo.co.uk

Thanks for reporting this. We haven't managed to notice PM/e-mail spam on this site so far, but if it continues to bother you, we will definitely investigate.

Sorry all. I already banned the first user who sent the spam email.
Next time if this happens again, could you send me the username who spams? "promisemelove1@yahoo.co.uk" is not a valid username or registered email. Thanks.

It's from user emy. It seems to me that there's a wave of spammers for IPB. It's not and will not be the first time.

There is a "Report member" button in profile view, it might speed up eliminating suspicious accounts.

Thank you all for your co-operation, I appreciate.
