I just got this e-mail and I'm very confused about why I was sent it.  I think a member is spamming other FreePgs members somehow.  In which case, you might want to be aware of it anyway.  If not, then can someone explain this e-mail to me...?

You have just been sent a personal message by Dean
Kelly on FreePgs.com Forum.

IMPORTANT: Remember, this is just a notification.
Please do not reply to this email.

The message they sent you was:

If you have some time check out this COOL website:
LINK REMOVED
Rest-assured
this is great entertainment!!!
Also, check out the following website I came across:
LINK REMOVED

Finally, the below website is the absolute BOMB!!!

EDIT: Er, sorry about posting the pic...my e-mail doesn't show images from people I don't know.  I didn't realise it was there when I copy/pasted.  Now I see it IS spam, porn spam.  So, I think FreePgs.com would like to be aware.  And, I'm an idiot for I should have READ the links.  -_-

From what I gather, this guy is sending personal messages here on the forums.  I just got the e-mail alert.  Either way, he's sending porn.

Yeah, I also got one.. but hey, what can you do, SPAM happens, and the only way to eliminate spam is to get rid of methods of communication that could allow spam, and that is PM system, forum, email... and those are obviously things you can't get rid of, so we just have to live with the spam and hope the Administators will deal with the person appropriately (i.e. ban them)

I agree but they can't do anything about it if they don't know.  ^_~   Also, at first I didn't know what the heck the e-mail was.  Heh.

Pretty sure the admin already did. There was a topic about this earlier today.

I got two of this spam mail too.
I open it but never follow the link and come right here to check out the forum because I don't believe this was send by Ed.
It is good to know that it has been taken care of by Admin but how did that sucker send it from here is he one of freepgs's moderator? I mean is this an inside job?

Probably just used a program to send pms to each member on the member list?

Yes, most likely as it was sent using the Forum (PM system) itself.  The messages show my email address because that was the notification of a new PM (and not an email sent to you directly)

The user was banned last night.

Thank you,
