If people are doing this, it's usually new members trying to get 15 posts to get classified access. If you see it, please report one of their posts.

I just got a strange PM from a new member. He said his "PM's are limited because he is new and would I please email him directly" and then he left his email. At any rate, my red flags went up so I didn't respond. He has now left me another email begging me to email him... What the heck is going on? New members can't PM? Why would somebody want me to email them directly? Is this legit or is someone trying to scam me somehow?
They only need to make 3 posts and the limit goes up. Really the only people affected by this are people who just sign up to buy stuff.
