That account was suspended just as soon as I was contacted about it. Pod On.
Signature removed, so as not to trigger any non Ford owners, non Irish Setter owners, current R-Pod owners, unhandy or mod negative Pod owners, or single campers of any gender.

I received a private message from this poster yesterday.  They asked that I respond with my email address as they had an urgent issue to discuss with me.  I checked them out in the members list.

They had joined the forum that same day and had made zero posts.  Of course I didn't respond and deleted the message from my inbox.

The only question I have is about how to report such SPAM from the messages. I know how to do it from posts in the forum, but I did not see an option to report from the messages. I saw that the account was already suspended, so I considered it a moot point to pursue this further at the time.

Another member sent me a PM... Linked the post.

Okay. I'll try to remember that if this were to happen again. Thanks for being so fast to shut this scammer down.
