IMPORTANT: Phishing Scam
 
One of our customers have reported a phishing email he received a few days ago which claimed to be sent by me. The email contained a link claiming to be to our forums but which took the users to a phishing site where they were asked to login. I confirm that this mail is not sent by me and is a phishing scam. Please make sure that you DO NOT follow the link and give your login credentials since this can lead to identity theft.

If anyone has received such an email and followed the link, change your login information ASAP and make sure that no unwanted updates has been made to your profile/messages/posts.

Here's a copy of the phishing email received:

As a general practice, make sure that you never follow hyperlinks in such emails. It is always safer to type in the URL and then bookmark/favorite it for future use. Before providing sensitive information at any website, please make sure that the complete domain name shown in the address bar is the intended one.

Have anyone else received a similar email? Please let me know through PM or email.
