Scamming / Hacker is Lurking on this Site

Post by hell-fire » Mon Sep 05, 2022 2:11 am

I have received 3 emails from the same guy but with different email addresses, here is what I can tell you.

He emailed me direct & I do no have my email in my profile.

He told me what my password for this site is and this password is unique to this site.

He is making all sorts of demands, (exactly the same wording with each email)

He wants $1,500 US in Bit coin to make it all go away, no I am not falling for it but people need to be careful.

If a moderator or Admin wants he details let me know via PM and I will send all addresses along with the properties.


Be aware everyone.

John
The same thing happened to me some years back. I ignored him and he eventually gave up, apparently. Another G503 problem is that pjones has been unable to log on for a while and the Moderator referred him to the Webmaster. He hasn’t yet received any response from the Webmaster to his emails. Phil is a valuable contributor to G503 and it would be good if this problem is resolved ASAP.

Thanks Don,

Good to hear from you, I was putting the word out and I thought there would have been some interest from a moderator as someone lurking and hacking accounts I see as a very serious issue, apparently it seems we are in a small minority.

Stay safe my friend & I will be in touch.

John, can you please forward any emails to Ken@g503.com. Ken should be able to help.

Also, name and email address this scammer is using so everyone can be on the lookout.

Hi Bill,

I have deleted everything as I heard nothing except from Don, the Guy was using the name John Black If he sends anything else rest assured I will pass it onto Ken.
