Be Warned - Board PM scam

Post by Supertex » Fri May 08, 2009 3:07 pm

I recieved a PM on this board, which is unusual for me, because I don't generally post here. It was titled "Forum Moderation, " and contained a link. It was sent by a user named something similar to "profilicus." I'm quite sure the site would have installed a keylogger, as the subject matter for this site is quite focused.

I'm sure most people have the common sense not to click on stray links, but for diligence's sake, be aware of this and don't make a foolish mistake.

That user has been deleted. In addition, PMs are now limited to 5 recipients at a time.
