    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.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    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

    We're tracking alike. I will ignore. Incident terminated.
