Dear fellow forum members.

There appears to be a bogus message from a JosephWard claiming to be from the Administrators. The message contains the following web link : antivirus2010.webcindario.com/online-scanner/

DO NOT CLICK ON THIS LINK.

This is a virus and the member is NOT an administrator (probably not even a real member....... well probably a member, but of a different kind... you get me?)

Any way, someone needs to report these messages and member to admin.

This is just to warn anyone who may have recieved a message, or just give a heads up to others in case future messages are sent.

Regards

m0viem0nster

I hope you are not talking about me :(

I was kind of expecting thanks, increased reputation, free MG .... or something, but not to get banned :(

Trulee meant she banned JosephWard. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Mods don't have the option of awarding MG.

How could I ever think of banning one our most regarded members :). If it was in my power to reward you with MG I would. I of course meant I banned Josephward.

I did gather what Trulee meant. I was only jokin' guys:D

I only hope no one got viruses as a result of the links.

Yeah, well spotted and thanks for reporting - this kind of thing is such a rotten thing to do to people, I could never understand others desires to cause people they have never met such trouble :mad: Anyway, hopefully no-one was affected - good job m0viem0nster :D

Its nice to be appreciated guys, thanks for your kind words, I just thought people would appreciate a heads up. This was also addressed by the REAL administrator, so I cannot take all credit. Warnings are always better coming from the proper channels though, I just thought my message would help save some members from problems in the meantime.
