The message accused me of sending spam and said that i was to click a link to scan my computer (not really that stupid) but it said if i did not pass it then my account would be deleted and my ip forwarded and all that :eek: what the heck is this??

Btw it said dear shiznat and a bunch of other names. I do NOT spam this site, i swear. What should i do and what is this?

Obviously, none of these messages came from anyone that is an admin or a moderator at Pigeon-Talk. I will let the site owners know that we have a problem that needs to be addressed here.

Please continue to use your common sense and be very cautious as you have been thus far.

I apologize for this type of stuff getting through.

Terry

It would be good that all of the internet users just go through and refresh the internet communication threats and basic do's and do not's. Let me remind you that there is no website in this world that can run with the sole watch eye of an administrator, it just doesn't happen like that. There are always guys/gals on the opposite side in this technology world who tries to hinder your happiness, I can assure atleast that ;)
