Hey guys, wanted to post this as a warning and mainly a precaution until we hear otherwise. Several of us have gotten possible FAKE email 'Topic reply notifications from member email addresses, and just want to warn everyone NOT to open them until we hear from either Donnie or Dave on this! I'm going to assume this is coming from a hacker (or hackers), unless we hear different. I have gotten several of these email notifications and they supposedly came from "members" email addresses and one day without thinking, i actually opened one and you do not want to know the hell i went thru for about 6 hours. Yes i have virus protection and paid darn good money for it, but whatever this was, slipped thru somehow. I can't prove it came from the email, but that is the only strange thing that i have noticed or opened and whatever happened to my pc, happened within minutes of opening the email.


REMINDER:

Just remember, if you get any kind of topic reply notification or a notification that you have a pm waiting, most of you all should know what they look like and what they normally say in them and that it comes from TH itself, NOT someones personal email address!! If you should get something other than that, DON"T open it! Now unless something has changed in that regard, I personally, am not taking any chances and just deleting those kinds of emails. Better safe than sorry! Mad Wink Cool

I have gone in my profile and changed my email notifacations to NO,
I think Ace said that should take care of the problem of getting emails.

Are we allowed to know what kind of "changes" it will be? Smile
By the way I have some ideas for the website too, but I must still work on them. Smile

This was actually several years ago, but best bet is to just not open any emails if you aren't sure. Thanks! Wink
