    Depending on the nature of the strange PM, I'd alert the management. If it's a phishing link or something, we don't need that kinda trouble!

    I got one few weeks ago asking me if I could help her with some projects. She has 2 listings here. I first answered but then ignored her other messages.

    I got one out of the blue on June 4th like that. Boiled down to it -- she wanted fabric. I couldn't help her though...

    If you are not comfortable about this certainly DO NOT respond and forward your concerns to a moderator or Admin.

    Sounds like the same person that PM'd me.

    If any PM strikes you wrong...copy and paste the whole thing to a moderator or admin.

    I got a message from someone asking for fabric, it took me a while to reply and then I got another one worded almost exactly the same way from someone else. Get this the first one's name was Ashley, the second was named Ash... coincidence? I THINK NOT!

    I was reading about that on another thread here and Admin. blocked that person wanting selvages, etc.

    anytime that happens just copy and paste and send to Admin.!

    Did you check to see if she was listed? I would still tell Patrice about it.

    I got one like that a week or so ago. I just ignored it. I've checked here profile a couple of times and she still hasn't posted anything. Sure seems weird to me. I mentioned it in the chat room and was told that the Administrators look our for things like that. I haven't heard from her again, thank Heaven.

    I can't believe somebody has the gall to ask for fabric. If you offered thats one thing but out right asking. :thumbdown:

    I have received PM's like that too and delete them. Also had a few asking for free fabric. Thats why I posted the message a few days ago about whether or not to trust them but the topic was locked. :?
