Strange PM from someone saying she is a Newbie

I received a PM from someone called Rebecca saying that she is new here and wanted to say 'Hi'. When I replied saying welcome, it must have given my computer details because I immediately received something listing lots of Buddhist links etc.
I cannot see the name of anyone called Rebecca in the recent Newbies.
In future I shall be very wary of replying to a name that I do not know from DC. It just seems rather strange. I have deleted it so cannot forward it to a Moderator. Should have thought of that but deleted before I realised it was a strange one.

LMAO @ the lengths these pathetic scamming losers will go to to peddle their ridiculous products. I'd like to find out where some of these people live.

Shame that someone is using this lovely site to peddle their own publications.
Even more of a shame to do it under such false pretences.
It feels like burglars trying to get in!

Our ISP is excellent in filtering out spam but it didn't occur to me that this wasn't gebuine. The word 'naive' or lonely crossed my mind.
It's a real shame their dragging Buddhism into a scam.
