p.1 #1 · My account was hacked


Hello FM forum readers, I didn't know where to post this but I wanted to share that my account was hacked and I have pretty good idea how and who did it. Here is how it went down!

I received an email from fmupdate@photographer.net basically stating the following:

Our servers have recently been upgraded, to provide you with a better forum and service. Your account on Fred Miranda Forums has temporary been deactivated Kindly login to reactivate your account.

To login Click on the link below: (link removed):

Thanks for your understanding,

All the best,
Fred

I was duped into logging into this false server and providing my details. One of the potential buyers sent me a message when things did't seem right, so they took extra steps to find me via FaceBook and validate that I was really selling a lens! This prompted me to login and see all of the communications that was going on between this hacker and multiple would be buyers! The email address that was being used to send pics of the items for sale was kely79langley@gmail.com.

I wanted to bring attention this and I'm trying to alert FM admins but I haven't been able to find any contact details.

So please be aware and careful as usual with your account information as well as if anything sounds suspicious on your would be buy it might be worth it to go the extra steps to see if this is a legit deal.

Wow. Sorry for your grief Fozzy. Thankfully I never check my email, lol.

Have you searched that email address or reported it to google?

Yeah it sucks as one person actually did send $$! Since they used Paypal from what I understand they have a chance to get it back. I can't really report the google email address since the phishing email came from an email address outside of google.

But I did report the phishing email to Google.
