i suspect that the spammer sent this to several thousand people, likely even to everyone.
:'( Nope. Not even the spammers like me. *sniffle*

I had similar problem on my forum, so I did pointed it out. Solution may be quite simple, if SMF allows to disable private messaging for users if they do not belong to specific user group, have specific number of forum posts or registered recently

You can use permissions to keep the newbie membergroup from using the PM feature.  However on this forum we feel it is important to allow people to contact us without having to post first.

I didn't receive any either. Isn't like I don't get enough spam as it is though!
