Can't delete a Blackberry Messenger message from unknown

I received a an invitation to BBM from a stranger over a week ago and I have not been able to delete it, ignore it or decline it. It just stubbornly stays in my inbox. 

Only thing I have not tried is to accept the invitation as I do want to. What can I do to get rid of the message? :smileysad: 

Thanking you kindly!

When you open the invitation in BBM you should be asked to Accept or Reject, and if you choose Reject you will also be asked if you want to block that PIN.

Just open the invitation like you open messages etc., this won't make you automatically accept it.

Let us know if you get it!

When I open the message I only get Accept, Decline, Ignore or Close options and none of those work so far. I have been trying everything from the Options menu but the blonde that I am I cannot get rid of the message :smileysad:

So if you choose Decline or Ignore, nothing happens and the invitation is still there like you've never opened it?
Have tried accepting, just to immediately delete him again?

Another thing you can try is to do a battery pull, that actually solves most problems. Just take out the battery with your device turned on, wait about a minute and put it back in.

Please let me know if it works, and if it doesn't then hopefully one of the really smart guys that might know what to do reads this thread...

Cheers
