  • Warning: Virus or Scam Alert

    Someone using the handle of japedNeF on these forums sent me a private message today with no text, only a link. I do not click on links from unidentified sources as they frequently lead to dangerous websites. The URL is http: //bit.ly/2b4E3Oe. (spaces added so it won't act as a link). The unshortened URL turns out to be Projectgold.ru, so it is a site in Romania. Web of Trust reports that the link cannot be trusted. If you receive a private message from this person, DO NOT open the link. japedNeF should be banned from these forums.

    Russia, not Romania (they're .ro, I believe). We'll handle it. Thanks for informing us!

        Yes, you are correct. I did a little more investigation and it appears this person is Russian. Thanks for the quick response Draco and H-W.

          Sorry about that, I know my comment is a little late. I will talk to Rob at some point about getting Administrative access to the Life of Rome website, so that I can add some sort of ReCaptcha, so we can stop spam bots.
