PM spam warning

I wanted to give you a warning on possible activity on the forum. Today I received a PM from a new member who has never posted but randomly picked me to send a PM too asking me how to change the air filter on his 4.7.

My profile and signature show I do not have a 4.7 so I would not have been his best choice for that question.

They also requested I respond to their email address with my answer which was what got me to thinking that they are mining for email addresses.

Do not respond to PMs or other requests where you will have to use your secure email address unless you know who you are conversing with.

If this member is legitimate then I will apologize but the warning is still relevant, protect your information while using the internet!
