    Default A word of caution!!!!



    The forum recently had someone join and then PM (personal message) a couple of our members who have items listed in the classifieds. This person was attempting to inquire about the items they had listed and included a link to view something that was supposedly similar. However the link that was included was actually to a fictitious log in. Fortunately we have a 50 post minimum before members can add items to our classifieds. This gives our membership some time to get accustom to how AF.net works and what the different features SHOULD look like. Neither of the members who were PM'd attempted to open the link.

    The clown that joined and was attempting to contact our members has been permanently banned!

    However this does give us the opportunity to remind EVERYONE.

    Be careful!!!!

    The moderator team keeps a close eye for any suspicious activity and takes action as soon as it is spotted, however the PM (personal message) system is private to members and we cannot see any messages that might be harmful.

    If any member receives a PM from another member you don't know that contains links, it would be a good idea to contact one of the moderator team to take a look before attempting to open the link.
