Scam attempt via forum PM

Just logged in & had some weird 0 post count user asking me to contact them via an email account provided in the message, obvious scam but can one of the team look at my inbox message/user who sent it, blocked them anyways.

Is this what these scammers are resorting too now, creating forum accounts to spam inboxes in the hope they can rope someone in?

Thank you all for the replies, I didn't click on the message to open it itself as I could see the contents without opening it, I was looking about for the flag button but as it's been a while since etc, I forgot where it was. Smiley Wink
