Default Is this a scam?

I got a PM from a user named dimensions and this was the message written, I have high doubts and do believe that this is a scam. If not, please tell me If yes, I do believe the mods will take proper action, thank you!



Hey, I have been browsing this forum and your basketball knowledge impresses me. I think you are really intelligent and you knowledge relating to the NBA is very good. I would love it if you would consider joining a basketball forum. If you are interested here is the link:



We are a realtively young forum that is still growing. We could use some more knowledgable people like you. You would be a great assest to the forum and I would really appreciate it if you would consider joining the forum. You would make the forum an even better place to post.

Thanks for your time. If you have any questions feel free to message me back.

It's not a scam, that is a legit site. But I don't think dj would appreciate this dude using dj's board to advertise his. I know that's not allowed in threads/signatures.

This dude has zero posts. He has been a member for a while (1.5 years)..... but never posted. I know that is a bit common. Has anyone else gotten this type of PM from this guy?

Thanks in advance...

And I'm removing the links to the site from your post.

Ive gotten similar messages from other posters, although I cant verify if its to the same site without seeing the link. The text is almost identical if not verbatim.

that is also why I seriously thought this was a scam because of the sender, he had no post at all.

I can beat the Sike test. FreshJive has gotten this PM before. It seems like it was over two years ago though.
