Hey all.

It seems there's phishers coming back around here to honor us with a visit. The latest was a guy named "Smartguy112". If you've received a link from him which took you to a page where you had to enter your password, change it right away. This site is bogus.

Tips to avoid being caught by phishers:

1) Always double-check the URL if you've received a link. 2) If something doesn't look right, it's quite possible it's not right. 3) Normally, if you're being linked to a public forum (Pub, General Discussion), you will never be asked for your password. It's viewable for guests too. 4) If you get caught, change your password ASAP.

If you get a PM from someone to a phishing site, please make sure you report it to either an admin or supermod. If you see a post, please report it to a mod of the forum (or a supermod/admin) with the report a post button (report.gif), or via MSN/IRC if the mod is online. Do not repost the link you've been given, as it might fool someone if a long-term member posts it.

That's pretty much it, I guess. Carry on.

Hmm. Why would they do that? In order to be able to spam with premade accounts, that might have reputation as valuable posters?

Good point, I keep getting emails asking me to update my paypal details by clicking THIS LINK and when you look at the URL behind it it goes to some .RU website. And you know some people will do it.

Does it count as suspicious behavior/spam if someone uses the same message in completely unrelated topics, like the poster above me?
