ChrisPark - ignore PM, probable spam, scam or virus

I just logged in to find a PM from a new member, ChrisPark. The first thing that was odd was that it requested a read receipt, which I ignored as I always do with these things. Don't let the buggers know you read it.

The message just sounds so wrong. Here it is:
"Hello. My name is Chris. I'm from USA. I'm new to this forum, i was hoping you could maybe teach me some stuff.

This is me-> http://1mageshack.us/img/chrisP.jpg - Just so you know who i am! feel free to post your own photos. Allways best to know who you talk to!"

I just clicked on his profile page where his home page has a url. I clicked on the url and there is a message from the site owner saying the url has been disabled as it has been found to be used for sending spam.

I've changed the url slightly for his pic to stop anyone clicking on it.

I suspect the whole thing is a scam, or spam, or maybe even a virus on the pic page. Anyway, I would ignore any further PM's from the guy unless someone can confirm this is all legit.

I came back to the site as I have had an email saying my Inbox was full and said Chris Park was trying to send me a pm.
