    Dave,
    Had two messages this morning. Tried to delete both, but one reappeared. I’ve left it in my inbox.
    Have a good day, tony

    As long as you don’t click on links they send or send emails to the email address listed. You are fine.

    You should be able to delete the messages with no issues.

    I too just got spammed from your site, it shows in my notifications.

    I’ll have to now have to cause messages from you to my email, to be treated as spam.

    Paul,

    The email from ekartingnews is not spam. The Private Message is. The EKN email is clean. Spam bots are sometimes able to break into the forum system, create an account and send out multiple private messages all within a couple minutes.

    All you have to do is delete the Private Message and not send any emails to the questionable email address in the message.

    Thanks.

    For those that don’t understand, the emails you are receiving are coming from EKN. The EKN email account is safe. The message is about the private message you received from the spam account that worked its way onto the forums.

    It’s simple, delete the private message, delete the emails. DON’T CLICK OR SEND EMAIL TO THEIR ACCOUNTS.
