Good Afternoon

New Forum user based in Sweden posted today under "General " & also Under "Travel , Tourism & Destination" advertising about "Skype ID" etc as well as "Whatsapp ID " etc . This is pure junk and should be banned from this Forum. Also now posted under "D.I.Y section as well

Thank You

David

He is just another spammer who has been reported and soon will be banned and his posts deleted.
He hasn't hacked the forum, just spammed it.
Hacking is more serious and takes someone with a bit of know how on how to hack a forum.
This one is just another mindless idiot trying to con people out of their money.
