Private Messages are used by members to discuss queries that may need to be explained in more detail.
Educators and giffgaff staff can also use Private Messages to contact you about subjects regarding the Community and your usage of the forum - e.g. to let you know that you've reached a new rank. Private messaging itself is for the community.
Please Note: Any account related queries you may encounter should be logged to the agents, and not sent to other members or to giffgaff staff via Private Message.
