SCAM: Beware of User Orion34

Recommended Posts

All

 

Be aware of what appears to be a user attempt to scam us by having us enter our login credentials on what seems to be a fake site. The user 'Orion34' is sending phishing scams via direct message. The message reads:

 

Orion34 has sent you a new personal conversation entitled "Hello".

Hello

I am very interested in purchasing your item,

But first click on my link and log in to see if there is anything you

will like for a trade.

Thanks

The link he directs us to is not our site although it looks identical. Clearly the URL and security certificate raise flags:

I've reported this via our site and hopefully, if I'm correct, the user can be blocked... just be aware!!

Thank you for your prompt action reporting this.

 

Orion34 has been banned and his IP addresses blacklisted.

 

If you have responded to the link in his personal messages, please change your email account passwords to prevent any possible account misuse.

 

All the best

Does this earn me any additional badge upgrade from Sea Nettle?
