Beware user misusing our site

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have had two private messages from someone who were attempting to sell some kind of cannabis oil from the US via a website. He says it's a remedy for anxiety but it's NOT, and it's illegal, and crynobody should be using this site to target people in this way.  I hope the organisers will now find a way to remove this user from the Patient site!frown

    Hi norabab,

    See link below re PMs. If you receive anything offensive or advertising etc via PM there is a "Report" link in the message you can use to let us know. We will deactivate any user who is abusing the service. I have deactivated this user.

      Thanks for your help.  I did look for a link for reporting things like this, but I am not yet familiar with the site, and did not manage to find it.  But I have saved the link and will know what to do next time.  thanks again

    As I said in my initial reply can users who receive private messages like this please use the Report link in the message if you still have them (or as soon as you receive them) otherwise I cannot do anything about this.

    Regards,

    Alan
