    Unfortunately, you can't without going into the DB itself.

    Admins/Mods don't have a PM moderation feature in the forums.

    Seems legit to me.

    If this is a common attack maybe add a posts to PM requirement

    One way to combat this is to add a registration question (we do it over on AO):
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-registrations

    Another way is to use Glowhost Spam-O-Matic. It's a VBulletin mod that will filter registrations and posts based on previously reported IP addresses and email addresses. It also uses Akismet for some of these features (a great Wordpress spam trapper mod as well.)

    Don't I have both of those already?

    We actually get very little spam. That's only the second PM spammer I can recall ever.

    I'd have to try registering again for the additional question. As for Spam-O-Matic, it would put some info into the footer area - so I don't think you have that one.

    Was hoping this was legit. Wanted to sell him Camille, and let him know that he's Nigerian royalty.

    They give a URL to buy the product from. It lists an address. Anyone here live in Cyprus? If so perhaps you could confirm their location. Then we have a starting point to find ways to annoy them. Simon could even sue them.
