    Hey I have tried contacting an Administrator however I don't have enough posts... I have also tried the contact us link at the bottom of the page and that keep returning my email as it is an invalid address.

    Can someone please help me out I keep getting this emails from the following three email addresses

    sales@www.pspmod.com
    support@www.pspmod.com
    administator@www.pspmod.com

    how can this be happening I thought that my email address was kept private on these forums..

    Cheers

    They aren't coming from this website, they're coming from a spammer spoofing those email addresses. As such, there is nothing we do can about it. All you can do is ignore and mark as spam.

    Interesting, i'm getting the same issue on my end. I get anywhere from 5-10 a week in my junk folder. Starting to really irritate me. The REALLY interesting thing is... it all started when i joined the site....

    It seems to be only affecting new members signing up in the last few months, so my guess would be that somehow someone is getting the data you input when you register, and using that info to spam.

    I'll pass on this to the admin, and see if he can do anything about it. Sorry for any problems this may have caused any of you.

    Ok not a problem thanks for the heads up.

    I joined back in 2008 so the theory about new users might not apply, I assume they got my email from this site somehow. I'm pretty sure it's set to private on my user info panel so I'm unsure.

    Thanks for looking into it.
