I received the following PM this morning.

Is it a new type of spam here on LJ?

Got the same but her page wouldn’t come up. I was very interested in speaking to her.

Hmmmm, “Miss Laura”. She’s either from the south or she’s a psychic. But if she was a psychic she would already know that you would turn her in for spam. So I’m guessing she’s for real! Give her a call.

You mean I wasn’t the only one she was interested in? Dang it, what a two timing floozy :-)

I got it too. Not new, just a spammer that registered an account and started PMing people. Cricket must have gotten it taken care of quickly because the message came through my email, but was deleted off the LJ site by the time I logged on.

Same for me as JayT. Saw it in my email, but by the time I clicked it open, she was gone.
THANKS Cricket !

It is very wise to delete any unsolicited e-mail. I will mark it as spam.

I got the same. She’s not only a spammer, but a two-timer.
