Richard, I received a private message notification from 'Lady_Admin Guest.
It was to myself and other individuals. It said my computer had a virus.
It told me to go to a site on the internet for a computer scan and listd the link. Upon clicking it my protective program immediately revealed it as an 'attack site' for gathering private information.
I won't list the link. I imagine that you have a way to discover all of this.

Did I miss the notice or warning of this?

Okay, duh, I found it right where it should be under 'computer...!
I just went to the message because of the notification before really going anywhere else.
