I've got this strange message from "Tagecho", whom I'm not familiar with. The message goes like this: " I want to share some interesting information with you. I have found a wonderful airsoft store with low prices http://airsoft-shop.rnrnh.com"

This sounds a lot like a phishing message. Do NOT click on the link if you get the message. The account holder could either be a bot, or has his account hacked.

The user "Tagecho" has been banned for spamming. Thanks to the many users who reported the spam IMs for bringing it to the attention of staff.

As noted above, there is always a chance these unsolicited messages are phishing or hijack attacks, so I recommend to all users to never click on any links found in unsolicited IMs or user messages just to be safe.
