I received two, strange Private Messages from a new user that just signed up May of 2016 (I don't recall the user's name unfortunately) The messages only contained what looked like a link to ABF.com and nothing else. It looked suspicious so I did not click the link and deleted the messages.

Has anyone else received weird PMs from unknown users lately?

I received some suspicious private messages back in 2008 of guys I didn't know who wanted to meet up with me and get to know each other. The messages were really creepy and had me worried that I was being stalked by some rainbow anglers. It turned out to be a buddy of mine who created the forum names of "minnow muncher" and "bobber slobber" and was playing a trick on me.

Ok, I found em, it was user: nikiforovae1988. They just signed up yesterday, 5/11/16. And to be clear, I'm not sure this was a scam - it was just two weird messages. Maybe they just don't know how to navigate the forum and sent the messages by accident.

Found the user. They joined on May 11, stayed online a grand total of 3 mins, and have not been back since. Without the message contents, I can't be sure if Spam, so I put them into moderation. They are blocked from messaging anyone but staff now.
