You might contact Admin directly (Fiberglass RV - Contact Us) about this or post in the Admin section (Forum Admin, News & Announcements - Fiberglass RV)

But please do keep us posted on what you find out!

We've been in email contact with Kyle/Astroboy and got the same spam. Keep in mind, it's probably not his doing... We had a yahoo account hacked 2 years ago and ALL of our contacts received spam messages from our address with no sign of it on our end. Had to delete the account to make it stop.

I've recently been spammed by a former moderator of FiberglassRV who's AOL account was hacked. It DOES happen. Just pay attention to any links inside the message and DON'T CLICK on any of them.

I just tell my email program to automatically delete mails from whatever address (or even from a certain domain, if desired).

I'm sorry you are getting spammed, but it's likely his account has hijacked or he has some malware that is automatically sending out spammy mail. I'd recommend that you blacklist his address in your e-mail options or report as spam to your e-mail provider.

Most importantly (as mentioned) don't respond and don't click on any links.

Stay safe...
