If this isn't allowed take it off. But wanted to make people aware that I received 2 suspicious emails with links to click after placing an item on the OGF marketplace. They seemed odd and before opening I searched to see if they were truly members, which both checks confirmed they were not.
Furthermore, my PM box showed no messages even though my e-mail box showed the two attached messages.
And lastly one email used the word "mate" and the second email showed it was sent from a cell phone not even sold or used in the United States. Just be aware of this to avoid compromising your personal info, computer or phone issues.

Thanks for posting this ErieRider.
Both of those subhuman vermin have IP addresses from Lagos,Nigeria and where booted a couple days ago.
Nigeria is where a lot of these parasites come from.

Guys/gals beware...we have been inundated lately with scammers.
Seems to come in spurts.
But seems lately...these worthless thieving scumbags are extra hungry and vigilant as they are attempting to become members under a different avatar as soon as their original avatar is banned.
As always...PLEASE BE CAREFUL WHO YOU ARE DEALING WITH!!!

Yup... the story of my life...lol.I know many guys feel more secure selling on here and wanted to give a heads. Again, I never clicked and did my research but wanted to let people know it's out there. And as you can see it looked legit. But when it said to click the email link and also the phone it was sent from.... just searching the phone model shows the phone is from overseas and used in South Africa and Nigeria to name a few

This is going on in other Carbon Media websites as well.
We are snagging them as fast as possible.
The list for those that were blocked is more than double the ones who make it through.
Sorry guys, we really are trying to stop this.

Just curious, couldnt you block international IP's from posting? I cant think of a legit reason for international ppl to be on this site.... save for maybe some Canadian's looking to vaca here or contributing to the Erie section. It is, "Ohio" game fishing.

I believe that you can report the email address to google and they will address on their end as well.

Don't know if thats something that can be done automatically or not....but it would help.
Maybe one of the other staff members with better IT skills can answer that one.

It would be neat if IP addy's was somewhere when they open a membership?
Doubt if that's possible, but would help. :)
Most of these guys are using virtual IPs...

If their accessing the email thru a members profile, can that email addy be hidden? There are websites that mask the persons/members email when they communicate with others as well so the persons email address is not compromised.
