Re: What to do with spam in your Private Message folder

Just received notification of a contest for a  Iphone12 using the PM private messaging ,     via email.

 

Yeah  right !   LoL

 

Of course came here to chk message,   instead of cliking on any links within the notification regards the offer to enter.

Also reviewed the report process made earlier on this thread  !  

 

Message originated from a   dimple***   and  according to their activity counter  has never posted on the forum.  

 

Deleted both the message within email account and here.

@dougc got the same message from a different user.  This is the first time I've ever seen PM have this problem.  Been with PM for a bit over 4 years now.  Guess this is what happens when you grow, hackers and the like are more interested, lol.

Me too, going into 5 years and never got a spam pm until today. I guess Public Mobile has to change the authorizations non Public Mobile customers get.

Re: What to do with spam in your Private Message folder

I wouldn’t think that simply not having access to the ability to send/receive Private Messages if not a PM customer would still be reasonable. Potential customers can ask any questions in the topics rather than having a real need for Private Message ability. The biggest problem implementing that would be PM doing the work to identify actual PM customers to automatically bump them up to the higher level here once they have activated a cell plan. The way a customer ceased to be a customer here would need consideration as well. A renewal failure makes one no longer a customer so if their Private Message access also quit working instantly things quickly get even worse.

 

There would be a small inconvenience of not being able to privately send a referral code to someone asking for one but it would also eliminate potential new customers asking a question in the Community then being bombarded with referral codes to their inbox.

DID YOU TRY TO ENTER FOR THE GIVE AWAY?

If you did not read the give away message correctly and entered your PM Account ID and PW  instead of the PM Community account login info. The spammer may have access to your account.

If you did this I would recommend changing your password immediately. One can't be too careful these days.

You're usually ok as long as you didn't give them information.

Re: What to do with spam in your Private Message folder

I kind of did, I filled out the first page as far as address goes, etc. then when I saw something about a $1. I clicked it off, not giving away my credit card information!

Edited to add, I just changed my password on here, just in case!  

Grrr I would hate to be hacked!
