Hmm, how to resolve this...
I wonder how this could be resolved, since, if I recall correctly, simply permanently suspending a member does not take away their ability to send PM's. Perhaps the ability to send PM's can be taken away?

Here is what mine said
Okay, this is not the exact wording. This is what I am seeing when I read between the lines:
sylvia writes:
Hello Dear,
i am a Russian male scammer. I am calling myself "Sylvia" and pretending to be an attractive woman, so that I can lure you into my trap. So if you will just send me an email to my address (xxxxxxxx@yyyyyyyyyy) then I can get to work conning you and ripping you off.
Okay, I wasn't faithful to the exact wording, and I don't have any actual evidence of the "Russian" or "scammer" parts. However, the probability of the "scammer" part is very high.
(abe) the original wording was the same as posted by Theodoric in Message 7
When checking the poster profile, I see "The member ID 9131 does not exist."

If you had used the correct spelling (i.e "Nigerian") there would not have been much chance of confusion with "the bad word".
I am guessing Russian, because there is a lot of Russian involvement in internet scams. For sure, they aren't responsible for all of it, but they are a significant player in the scamming business.

The sad thing is I am 1/2 Canuck. The other 1/2 is Puerto Rican so that might explain it.

Re: Here is what mine said
Yes, but the Nigerian scams are usually more blatant about money. Pretending to be a woman and hinting at sexual favors seems to more commonly come from Russian scammers.
