Important Fake Message Warning

Post by Base on December 24th 2013, 6:41 pm

Hello everyone,

It has been brought to my attention that there is a message going around saying that it is possible to obtain free credits by visiting a link. Please note that this message is a fake and that you should ignore it. Do not visit any links claiming that you can obtain free credits. The safety of your forum could be comprised if you do so.

Just a quick technical information, even if you directly receive an email by forumotion@hotmail.com, do not reply without having it confirmed on this forum; the HTTP headers sent with each email can be faked to display a completely different name than who actually sent it! Only with appropriate knowledge you can find out who actually sent the email, so unless you have both verified the legitimacy of the email on this forum and have also checked the entire HTTP headers of the email (Yahoo! allows that, for example, and I'm pretty sure every somewhat competent email host should offer the option to you, too), do not reply or follow their demands.
