Spammers...

I just receive email from TOH.com
They're saying that I failed to log in 5 times and my account is suspend. :rolleyes:
I know it is not my IP address and the link isn't kosher.:rolleyes:

Be very careful Ladies and Gents.
Do not click on link via email. Just deleted it.

Dear BigWalt,

Your account on TOH Discussions has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.

Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below:

All the best,
TOH Discussions

Re: Spammers...

I recieved one of those today Walt. I came on here to see if it was true then to see, if I could find an address to forward the email to.

Re: Spammers...

I just got the same e-mail. Actually I stopped visiting this site because it kept bouncing me out. Oh well.

I got mine - Deleted!

That's the beauty of junk mailboxes that you rarely check. :D

Re: Spammers...

And thank you, Sprucey... for the reminder about my other mailbox. Good grief. Haven't checked that thing in a month or more. Sure enough.......there it was. Nice to know I wasn't overlooked. :D

Deleted. Done deal.

Could it be someone was trying to guess your password so they could change a post and report it to the admin?:eek:

Re: Spammers...

Another thing to watch out for is a phishing e-mail. It's one that asks you to confirm your password or says your password has be compromised and tells you to change your password. They have a link listed and if you click on it it will ask you to enter your password for confirmation or ask you to enter your existing password and a new password. These are used to collect your passwords and are not affiliated with the sites. If you ever change your password go directly to the site involved and change the password there. I usually get about 3 a week asking me to conferm my Yahoo password or a bank password.
