Default Did anyone (everyone) else receive an invite to review....

....what appears to be a new, on-line fly-tying video?

It came in the form of a PM, from a new (April 2012) forum member, with a history of zero posts.....

It all looked a little dubious to me, as it might ust be an attempt to harvest email addresses, so I didn't "register".

Just wondering what others were doing with it......

I saw a post earlier today on another site, same type of thing, but it was reported to the admin there as spam. I didn't open the link & it was likely the same person.

I'm not that trusting either, seen to many scams or attempts at malicious stuff to open links from folks I don't know. Even if it looks like it's from someone I know, I'm still always suspicious!

Even if it's legit it's a poor way to make friends, using someone else's site without permission to further interest in your own.

Didn't receive that, but sounds like spam or scam to me!

I did too, I just deleted it. Luckily I never opened it as it seemed odd, not something I would expect other forum members to send out in a PM
