Potential offensive private messages

(39 Posts)

This afternoon I looked at my private messages and there was one from a poster I did not recognise. There was the start of a potentially offensive message along with the title so I did not open it. I deleted it and sent an email to Gransnet to block this person. They dealt with it very promptly and he/she will not be able to send any one another private message. I am posting this to say thank you to whoever dealt with this at Gransnet HQ and to warn Gransnetters that anyone can come on here and send offensive private messages so be aware!!

I never look at my in box unless I expect a message , so I read your post and checked , sure enough there it is ! How do I tell the Mods ?

Hi aggie, email them on [email protected]

I get an email telling me that a gransnetter has sent me a private message so from now on if I don't recognise the name I won't follow the link.........I will delete it.

I haven't had a message from him , , Deeply hurt !!!!πŸ€” But I do get emails from a very rich Nigerian Prince who wants to give me millions of his money , all I have to do is give him my bank details , lucky me eh !πŸ˜‚

Oh Lilypops are you not the lucky one? You could easily pop a cheque into your account without hassling him with your bank details.

I got one from a lynch222 wanting to share an ideology with me and asking me to chat on a WhatsApp number. I’ve blocked the weirdo and have reported them.

BlueBelle Sat 27-Apr-19 20:29:55

Feeling quite left out sad

Gonegirl Sat 27-Apr-19 21:15:13

Same here. Why haven't I had one?

Bathsheba Sat 27-Apr-19 21:32:57

Not fair. I never ever get these dodgy pm's

<flounces out in a huff>

Chewbacca Sat 27-Apr-19 21:34:53

Feeling quite persona non grata sad

Maybe tomorrow?

Charleygirl5 Sat 27-Apr-19 21:39:43

I thought maybe this creep was finding us alphabetically but if he has missed out Chewbacca, Gonegirl and Bathsheba that is not the answer. Maybe our natural charm shone through somewhere. He has missed so much, thankfully.

Bathsheba Sat 27-Apr-19 21:54:49

Charleygirl I knew there had to be a simple explanation winkgrin

callgirl1 Sat 27-Apr-19 21:58:46

I'm feeling quite neglected now, I never got one.
