What should I do if someone sends me a creepy PM?
As SC stated, anytime you receive anything from a user on TMB (whether via PM or email) that you are uncomfortable with or feels “creepy”, please refer the matter to me, especially if you have asked them to stop and they persist.
You can PM me or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I can check messages on my phone and computer, so I will usually get back to you fairly quickly and will work to resolve the matter.
I am very glad you posted this question publicly, so that ALL can be aware! Not everyone on here is who they portray themselves to be. If someone seems too good to be true in their posts, they just may be.
Kudos to you for not letting fear of offense, keep you quiet!
Were these messages via email or through the PM system? If it’s via messaging via email, if you reply back, your email address is seen. So if it’s identifying in any way…well, just be careful.
I have gotten some odd private messages via email, and I came to the PM system to reply back. Of course I never heard anything back, which seemed like confirmation to my discernment and their motive.
