Important Warning about phishing attempts via email

Post by The Godfather December 21st 2015, 12:33 pm

Warning about phishing attempts via email Phishi10

Hello,

We noticed that many of our users tend to ask us questions about the veracity of an email that they received from a sender claiming to be Forumotion and asking them to update their forum or some of it's features, earn credits, etc. by downloading an application and run it on admin computer. After that, admin must gives his forum URL, user name and password to get the update... What the fuck ?!?

See example:

We're here to warn you that these emails have absolutely no relation with Forumotion! These are phishing & malicious emails. batman

Forumotion or its staffs will never ask you to provide your password to maintain or update the forum. This is clearly a phishing attempt.

Be careful; if you receive an email like this, don't click on links nor install the software or give your login info!

Best regards
The Godfather

Dear members, This is just a warning to all forumotion.com members,

This has not been sent out to all members hosted with us this is just some members.

There is no need to post if you have or not had this Email.

If you have got it then just delete it, as the Godfather has said we do not Email any member to download any files or do we ask for you to log in to any Emails and ask for passwords in a Email.

If An Pro admin needs to do anything to your forum they will just do it or send a warning on your ACP.

If you have had this Email and Clicked on it Please feel free to PM me and i will be happy to help with fixing this problem for you.

Never Give out your Email address in public or your founders password no matter who asks for it.

All staff here will ask for a test account if they need it and will not make an account on your forum.

Pro admin's and Manager's may ask for Your founders Email address By PM only. This data will only be asked for if you need a password reset or you can not enter your forum for what ever reason.

Thank you The Godfather. Forumotion is no different from any of the other online sites when people try to phish your information. Never click on links and never give out your private information. Doing so is only asking for trouble.

This topic is about emails that you receive that look like they are from Forumotion.  You need to locate a forum that offers support about emails.

P.S.  I would say yes that is a spam/phishing email.
