    Default Beware of member named "Jessie"

    Hello everyone,

    I've discovered that a member who signed up under the username "Jessie" is a Spammer who uses the We Have Lupus Private Message System to send spam/advertisements to our legitimate members. Some of the messages sign off, or end with a link-DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK, it will attempt to download a virus to your PC with never-ending ads, popups, and who knows what else. This bogus member has been permanently banned, but I suggest if you have a PM from this spammer in your PM file, that you delete it, and do not click on any links in the message. Thanks everyone, and thank you to the person who brought this to my attention.

    Thanks Rob!! Didn't get any from them, but it's good to know. Would it help to tighten membership requirements to sign up?

    thanks rob,

    i did not get any pms from this ruthless character.....maybe if they truly suffered like we do, they would understand how angry this kind of crap makes us.

    Hi Larry,

    Tightening up membership requirements is probably not needed at this point. Since I'm aware of this new tactic, I know what to look for. It's amazing sometimes the elaborate, and futile effort so many will go through to make a dishonest quick buck. It makes you wonder why people don't apply all this thought, effort, and planning to legitimate ways of earning money. Such is life.
