At 17.01pm and again at 17.50pm as I write this post, I have received emails from Albufeira.com (the “newest forum member” blackd1) in relation to Western union money transfers to the UK and instructing me to click on links (which I have not done) I suspect that the Albufeira.com page has been hacked and that I am not the only member to have received this.
Would admin please look into this.

Spambots. Very difficult to stop completely but admin are working on new system which will help.

Ignore anything you ever see with a 'hidden' link - standard internet security.

That member can be blocked but all they do is re-registerwith a new name.

Deleted the member name. It was registered from a British location, which is unusual for these type of things. They are more usually Chinese or Korean.

Many thanks for the prompt action Cubsur.
I was obviously concerned that he/she had managed to get hold of my personal email address and that the emails appeared to be from Albufeira.com.
