Recently I received an email for a new private message. I clicked on the link, and it popped up saying I had no new messages (in my CP).

Here is a copy of the email:


Pande,

You have received a new private message at LucasForums from Patricia entitled "Re: Pande". Please click here to log in and read it:
http://www.lucasforums.com/private.php

Thanks,
LucasForums team


I looked around on the member list, and there is no such user as Patricia. I also refreshed my page and still have no emails. Is this a hoax? Or is there a problem with something internally?

Thanks,
Pande

I received the same message. I assumed it was some kind of database glitch. Either that or the user was sending out a bunch of spam PMs and has since had her (his?) account deleted, which probably deleted his (her?) outbound messages as well.

The latter is correct. Patricia was a spam bot which was mass-sending PMs to hundreds of members on this forum and a few others, advertising some site. The account has been banned and all the spam PMs it sent before being dealt with have been deleted.

It is not possible to revoke PM notification emails that have already been sent out though.
