    I have advised Clay as well.  Please, do not follow the link in that spam p.m. message.  This time I got one too!

    I just got this message again – sender identified as keragerni.  I’m notifying Jennifer and Susie.

    Clay is on it!  He’ll be removing the p.m.’s

    Thank you so much everyone for the quick alerts to this stuff!  You guys are wonderful!

    O.K.!  The spam messages from “keragerni” in the Army should be gone now.  You may have a notice telling you that you have a new private message – and then no private message to see – this is because the spam messages have been removed.

    Thanks again for all of the messages to us alerting us to the problem!

    Same username, just with a space, sent another message. I really wonder what they hope to gain from this, considering I’m pretty sure no one is clicking their links or replying to them etc

    I just woke up to 2 more. Same person, messages sent one minute apart. Hopefully she gets bored soon!

    The Spammer (keran gerni) just PM’d me 8 minutes ago – I’ve emailed Jennifer and Susie.
    Then I blocked the Miscreant and deleted the PM without clicking on it or reading it.

    DO NOT CLICK ON OR READ THE PM MESSAGE – DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY!

    Hi guys! Sorry this problem returned overnight when there was no one around to squish it. I think I have blocked all of our current “wave” of spammers so you should not get any NEW spammy private messages (timestamped after 9:30am EST). If you do, please reply here with the exact user name of the person sending you spam.
    As for what to do with the spam private messages you already do have (if any), just delete them. I think that by me marking the users as spammers on our web platform that their PMs might become unavailable to you… but if not, just delete them. Please don’t be alarmed if you read the message; reading it won’t cause you any trouble (other than annoyance). Just please don’t click any links in the messages! That’s where you can get into trouble.

    I confess I don’t know enough about our web platform to remove any pending notifications you might have for new messages; hopefully Clay can figure that one out for us!

    (I’m re-posting this to all the current threads about the spammer)

    I thought it was very strange to receive a PM here since I haven’t posted anything on this forum is FOREVER!

    I went to check the “person’s” profile and there wasn’t one….
