Default Weird PM

I got this from Maggie280 in a PM:

Hi there, I can help you out with a lead. Contact John on [email protected] regarding your request, he has 1918 Colt M1911.. He is located in San Jose , CA 95112 and the last time i talked to him, he had for sale. I purchased items from him in the past and they arrived in TOP condition. I hope this helps.. Cheers

Unsolicited PM's - unlike email - are (or should be) rare in the extreme at GBO. Like email though, if you don't know the subject matter, did not initiate the conversation in some way (in this case), or (in particular) do not know the person who PM'd you, report it (as you have), delete it, and then forget about it.

I thought I had seen "Maggie280" in the Member's Introduction Forum, but now cannot see that Username there, so am puzzled. I followed the Username to the Member's List and found the same "zero statistics" as you have reported.

Thank you for your perseverance through this. It is hoped that this was a "one off" occurrence. If it persists, report it again, and Administration will care for the problem in the way only it has the power to execute.

Ignore maggie 280. They want you to respond to the email address so that they can get your email address and then Katie bar the doors cuz your email address goes on the list of gullible prospects to scam.
