Recently a new member registered and began sending out PM's to ER members that were blatant spam. They contained an offer to get rich quick by subscribing to a penny stock picking newsletter and the promise of 200 percent returns on great stock picks.
When this was reported today we removed this individuals account as well as all the PM's that s/he sent out. You may have received a notice that you got a message from this (ex)member but when we scrubbed the account, the PM's were also removed.
If you receive spam via your account here we want to know as this is not allowed. To report abuse, you can report by clicking the little red triangle at the bottom of the post or use the contact us link at the bottom of the page or message any moderator.
We do not share your member info with anyone, but can't entirely prevent an existing member from abusing the PM system. Thanks to those of you who reported this bottom feeder today - it hastened his departure. Sorry for the inconvenience folks and just a reminder.... if it looks too good to be true it probably is.
