Default Spam warning - messages

Just to warn people not to click on a link if you receive a PM from someone called “Marianne” with the title “Hamster books”. On opening the message another window opens asking you to click to say you’ve read (read receipt). I am assuming this is phishing spam.

Thank you for pointing this out

I would get suspicious rightaway to receive a PM from someone i don't know. Same as i don't answer phone calls from numbers i don't know. They can leave a message saying who they are and what they want.
