David - just read your post, which is of concern. Could you please confirm exactly who this message purportedly came from, their email address, and content of message (if agreeable to you). Please send to me privately at my office email address. If this is what I suspect, misuse of the forum by a new member rather than a 'leak', the person originating the post will be subject to an immediate and irrevocable ban.

David

Quick additional question - did the email to your late brother's address emanate from the same source? If so it will be barred this morning, though how this latest address would have been gained I have no idea, because it appears not to have come through the forum (in which no email addresses are listed, other than to the administrator).

The origin of the messages has been ascertained. The source has now been barred from the ABFG Forum.
