    Hi all,

    I've just been informed that some of you may have received a PM today claiming to be an antivirus warning from the GardenStew administration. It was not from us, but rather a mischievous member whose account has since been removed and the PMs deleted.

    DO NOT click any link in this PM. Also for future reference DO NOT follow any directions in a PM claiming to be from the GardenStew administration if it is not from any of our moderators (currently Frank, Eileen and Toni).

    The site was not hacked, just misused.

    Thanks for reading!

    This is really creepy Frank. Are you saying that someone actually spent the time to send that many PM's individually??
    Some people need to get a life!

    :D I quite agree with Netty there.

    I trust the administrators to inform us all on the forums in case there's something we need to know. I can't imagine that Frank, Eileen or Toni have time on their hands to send hundreds of individual PMs.
