Default Urgent, please read!

One of the forum members told me he got a friendship request with my photo in his email. I did not send this. If anyone else gets one do not respond to it. This is a hacker or spammer fishing for information. Please email me about it through the forums or send me a PM. You can do this by clicking on my name. Make others aware of this scam so they do not fall prey to it.

You only have to look at all the 'suspicious' accounts being opened to see the depth of this problem.

Always check the public profile of any new poster before you respond.

Thanks for the heads up, Mike.

Thanks Mike

Workmanship is not perfection; it is how well you can cover your mistakes.

Dick, your email address is safe and secure on the forums. If somebody wants to contact you it is sent via the forums and will show their Email address unless they have it blocked. Nobody can access your email address except admin, even I can't access them.

Not only once, but twice!! I recieved another one today. Be careful people... it looks JUST like the real thing from Facebook.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

Exclamation Needs repeating......

Bump.

Something like this should be repeated every so often.

Internet security is a big issue, world wide....

So many problems these days from China, Eastern Europe and now Africa.

Be alert (the world needs more lerts).
