Hey Guys,

My girlfriend just tried to sign up to the forum under the username: "Shelby".

When she came back to the site she received the attachment.

Wanted to reach out and see if it would be possible to find out what happened.

Thanks!

Her account was rejected by an admin because it was used to post a spam message.

That means either she posted what we consider to be spam, or someone/something posted using her account, or...?

Not sure what thread or whatever... The account has been reinstated for now.

Thanks Scottie. That's very strange. :huh: I just asked her if she posted anything, and she told me: "How could I have posted, if I didn't have an account?" She obviously has no idea what happened, so it really makes me wonder if someone/something posted using her account. I just don't know how that would even be the case.

Appreciate you guys reinstating it though.

Maybe because 'Shelby' is a product name and a com domain.
There seems to be a spam trigger log.

Thank you mrtn, that makes sense. I'm glad you mentioned that. I was sitting over here wondering if her computer had been compromised somehow. Now I can sleep in peace. :-) Thanks again guys and goodnight! :zzz:
