Forum administrator Cyber Bishop has delivered a warning of a new kind of spambot and a guideline that is to be followed.
Read what he has to say:

Recently there has been a rash of spambots Pm'ing people on the board.
If you receive any PM's with strange links DO NOT CLICK ON THEM.

Please report them to the staff and I will deal with them.

ALSO it is important that when you report you spell the spambots name correctly.


We at seibertron.com count on your cooperation in this matter and are working on getting this problem out of the world.

What is a PM. More importantly, what does the link do? Is it ads or is it a snopes worthy virus?

A PM is a Private Message. It is like an e-mail system that only works for registered users. The links probably contain viruses and spyware.

I got two of them last week but deleted them, sorry CB.

If you get a suspicious PM from someone (That user's been taken care of now) please click on one of the Staff Member profiles and send us a PM containing the information.

Thanks!
