Not hacked...it was a human scammer/spammer.

Unfortunately we can't stop an English educated human scammer/spammer from creating an account & sending PM's with our current settings. If it does become an ongoing problem, we'll come with something to stop it though.

Anytime that happens, letting me know ASAP like Steve did really helps. I removed the account immediately and any of those PM's that hadn't been opened were deleted with it. However, the people that did open the PM to read will have to delete it from their inbox themselves.

What's still happening? Did you get a PM from a scammer on SA?

If so, give me a username & I'll look into it.
