    Ok, that is very fishy. Carecure can;t detect a virus on your computer, so whoever pm'd you that is trouble.

    You should sent this to Steven Edwards and Wise Young to be sure they see it.


    The member name isn;t in the list of members. DO you really have a PM here too? Or just the email?

    mona,

    This does not come from CareCure. Somebody is sending you spam private messages. Please do not click any of the links. Thanks for posting this. We will track it down.

    To everybody, neither the administrators (myself and Steven Edwards) nor moderators will ever send a private message (PM) like this to you. Let us know if you get anything like this.

    Wise.

    That's a spammer, Mona. We do not have the ability to detect viruses on your computer, so please don't visit the site.

    This is definitely from a spammer who has registered and banned four times since Feb 4 2010. The most recent was Feb 10. I banned the IP address. Wise.

    ...and I just banned the email domains they use.

    Steven, thanks. Wise.

    Thanks, Wise.

    I just added a warning against clicking links from unknown users to the PM page. I'll tweak it over time.

    Thank you so much Wise, Steven, Sjean & Judy. I really didn't think I had a virus. My anti virus didn't notify me & I was shaking my head that y'all could detect one. I'm so glad I didn't click anything. I knew y'all would help me out. What a great team y'all are!
    Thanks! Mona
