"Important Info" PMs - Careful!

Post by Synonym » 25 May 2009 06:25 pm

This seems very similar to a phishing scheme that has struck facebook! The site "megl" will appear to be a login page of some sort, and will take your info! The person who sent you the message, though, is likely just a victim. But don't go to the website!

Jazzy's been on top of keeping spammers from spamming posts, so a couple have switched to private messages. Again, don't follow any links sent to you via pm from someone you don't know. You have not won a free ipod and you aren't saving the whales. Jazzy's still working on a way to sort this out.

I just got one from 'ferracont'. I didn't open the link since I suspected something like this.

I just got one from "freanour". I'm oddly flattered that the spambots think I'm part of the neocolours club!

It had the subject line "Spam Protection". Really, does anybody fall for that?

Sadly, yes, yes they do. The fact that these people that do this stuff still keeps on trying seems to suggest such.
Thanks Tiel for the lovely set!
