I've received a message from Forumotion, is it true ? 09615175912Beware of fake emails :
If you receive an email like this:
Dear Founder,
My name is ----, Forumotion Adminstrator.
A hacker is causing us problems lately, and is threatening to attack your forum.
So we can protect you as best as we can, I will need admin rights on your forum, so I can patch it and avoid you being hacked.
Please give me your login as soon as possible, so I can protect you from his hacking attempts.

Please also see an example link of how he proceeds : http://www.----.com

We count on your fast collaboration, this is a serious threat.

Best regards,
Forumotion Administrator.

How to react :


    - Do not answer nor click on any link !- Copy / paste the mail and send it to a staff member of this forum if you want to be sure it's a fake.NOBODY will ever ask you your password within the staff of Forumotion. We do not need this information to ensure the security of your forum!


   I've received a message from Forumotion, is it true ? 09615172706OK for mails, but I've got a PM from Forumotion ... ? ?
Same principle. If a member registers on your forum to send you a PM claiming to be Forumotion:


    - Do not answer nor click any link !- Save the mail account he used, - Copy / paste the PM and send it to a staff member of this forum if you want to be sure it's a fake.


If you have received this via the Contact option  (reference [Contact] appears in the title)


    - Do not answer nor click on any link !- Save the mail account he used, - Copy / paste the message and send it to a staff member of this forum if you want to be sure it's a fake.


Obviously, Forumotion never uses private messages to contact a forum administrator. Wink

When Will Forumotion ever Email me?
Forumotion Will only ever Email you if you have asked for a password reset or Email address change
We will never ask you to give us any passwords for this matter we will just send you a new one by Email
and our Emails will not have any links for you to press.
