Is there no way to report spam in private messages? I deleted it after I didn't see a button to report it, but now I wish I'd looked at the user name. It was a new member that didn't have any posts.

There is a report button for private messages. It is on the top right hand corner, small triangle with an exclamation point, just like on the posts - only up top in the blue header bar.

Otherwise, you can forward the PM to the admin as well.

vbulletin can be mod'd to not let new users send PM (or post URLs ...) might be a too much effort or not desirable here but it helps the drive by spam on the tech forum I mod.
