It's obviously a scam, don't click the link. I would wager that clicking that link would actually put a virus or malware on your computer.

DO NOT CLICK ON THE ACTIVE LINK IN myfunnyvalentine's POST, EITHER!! IT'S POSSIBLE IT WILL TAKE YOU TO A SITE WHERE MALWARE WILL BE DOWNLOADED ON TO YOUR COMPUTER...

Moderators, is there any way you can edit myfunnyvalentine's post to remove the hyperlink from her message?

Thanks!!

it won't work as it's copied the '...' in the middle of it, not the ACTUAL addy, so it won't work. Mind you, I'm not game enough to test it either!!! lol.

Yeah... just what I was thinking! :lol: I really hate it when people come onto our (sometimes) friendly forum and start messing with viruses/malware/spam, etc... It just ruins everything!!! :evil:

I got it, too. I clicked it. It was trying to sell me antivirus software. Unfortunately I let me Norton antivirus expire. So I downloaded free trialAVG. Did a whole computer scan ( took almost 2 hours!!!) , 2 viruses and 4 trojans were detected and I cleaned it out. Hope my PC is okay now.
I did have trouble getting back on here to report I am clean. This red screen popped up twice telling me this site was unauthorized. Again, I got pop ups trying to sell me antivirus software. I finally got to post this here.
All right.................who angered the cyber gods?????

Good job everyone. Just always be careful when you receive emails or PMs from a member you do not know and it has a link in it. DON'T EVERY CLICK ON THESE LINKS.

The Admin team here does not send out emails like this so it will never be from us. Use good judgment and if you're unsure, just ask before you click on anything. :)

Mine too! It looked immensely fishy, so I headed straight I've here to check it out.
Glad to know it's false-- I'd hate to think there was a virus on my phone!

thank goodness for that, I was stupid enough to click it, as I assumed as it was from the forum it would be ok, should have noticed it was from a jnr member.

However, it did not do anything and my laptop was doing a bullgaurd scan at the time so fingers X
