Just FYI I think Cricket wanted PMs sent to her instead of forum topics opened….. so this one may get closed down

I had the email notification but when I checked my inbox it was already gone so I think that means we can avoid hammering Cricket’s inbox with spam alerts.

It just wreaked of spam from the get go. I used to get emails from my customers with such bad english grammar that I knew it wasn’t them. “I am found in in other country with all my wallets removed and need money to home get please. I will back you pay”

I recommend that you tag your own post as spam so that Cricket sees it. (put a note that you are tagging it so that she knows it was you).

Its a pain and a real kind of invasion of privacy.
It would be sometimes nice to know the origins and whether these people ever make money from this spam stuff.
