    I've also got that PM, but I'm not going to share a single penny from the above amount, with you or anybody else

    Report/forward spam PM's to a moderator. By posting the spam content you are helping the spammer by getting his message and links posted on this forum where it will soon appear on feeds and search engines.
    If you are learning PHP, developing PHP code, or debugging PHP code, do yourself a favor and check your web server log for errors and/or turn on full PHP error reporting in php.ini or in a .htaccess file to get PHP to help you.

    I banned the user; could the OP remove the message from his post?

    Excellent advice. If only there were a "report this PM" or "flag as spam" button in the PM section. I get spammed on here all the time (or at least sent messages by users with 0 posts).

    That will be an option when I update CF to the newest version of vBulletin in a few weeks.
