Upload & Sell: Off
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.

Thanks for your understanding,
All the best,
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 email@example.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.
