    Happening on my Android phone. No issues on PCs. National consumer center popup. Ran AV scan and CCleaner on my phone, this is the only site where it happens.

    There is a very suspicious message in my Inbox with a foreign title and no post history.

    I want to delete it as I suspect it is a virus.

    Can anyone tell me how to delete a message from my Inbox without opening it?

    Again, can anyone tell me how to delete a conversation in the in-box.

    Just need to know how to do it. It's definitely spam.

    Thanks

    Go to the message (conversation).

    In the upper right select Leave Conversation.

    In the pop-up window select Ignore future messages, then press Leave Conversation.

    in inbox, check a box to the left of the convo and just mark it as read. I cant see a way to delete but marking as read will ensure you never open it?

    Or open it on a device with strong virus protection and close it. It probably has a link or file you would have to click to let the virus in anyway?

    I don't know who to thank but suddenly it's gone. Am I relieved because I accidentally opened it. So far no harm that I can determine.

    Thanks BRR

    Thanks for your help. Suddenly it's gone. I'm think a site administrator did something.

    Again, I appreciate your help.

    I started a conversation before I read your post.

    Thanks for getting it resolved as the message is now gone. Appreciate your effort.
