Thread: Weird Emails

  1. #1
    Ok so a little bit ago I get an email from Oink saying I've requested to change my password and to click it to confirm, which I did not so following the directions in the email, I just ignore it.

    Two minutes later I get an email invitation to some random site called scnacxes A few minutes past that some random person emails me stating that they have access there and invited me and is requesting access to Oink.

    Now, I dont know the person, nor the site. Is that site even legitimate? I replied to the person whom of which I have never seen anywhere before that I never heard of Oink and cant help them. What do you all think, is that kind of odd or am I just paranoid?

    I've also just noticed that the url is blocked. I dont want to reveal the exact url because obviously its filtered out for a reason but anyone who knows of the site and has information about it will obviously know what I'm talking about.

    didn't u read the announcement made at oink abt a month ago? I was a member at OinK at that time and they have clearly mentioned not to click on any link regarding password change on OiNK, its just used to hack u r account on OiNK, these mails are'nt sent by OiNK anyways!!!!

    My Advice:

    READ THE ANNOUNCEMENTS TO AVOID THE RISK OF YOU GETTING U R ACCOUNT DISABLED FOR ANY REASON (UNFORTUNATELY I DIDN'T KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR WHICH I PAID THE PRICE i.e I GOT MY PRECIOUS OINK ACCOUNT DISABLED)

    Be careful or u will lose u r account

    Clicking that link set in motion a chain of events that triggered the IFPI to contact the local authorities and well......the rest is history!

    I didnt click any links heh, feels like no one read the details of the post, all I did was ignore the email as the directions of the email stated.
