    I just had a very strange experience: I have a posting in the Member Classifieds and I received a pm from paulking11.

    Hello

    I have the requested item in excellent condition, Kindly click my link and log in to see price, details and photos


    But now, I can't find any trace of him.

    Anyone know paulking11 or had any dealings with him?

    Most curious, to say the least...

    Wouldn't hurt to run your virus scan if its a PC. Just for piece of mind.....

    Wow! That's a first for me. A phish reaching into the forum to grab a member.....

    Good to know that can happen so we can all be on the lookout!

    Great response time from @paruwi ! :thumb:

    Things like that go to show which board really care about their members! :thumb:

    Thanks so very much for the info paruwi :h5: Hopefully, no damage done.

    Want to know the worst thing: the message first showed on the top of the screen in the "alerts." Looked totally legit. Even in my email, when I click the message, it has MyLesPaul's image: upload_2017-7-13_14-46-11.gif

    This got me thinking about the IRS and Microsoft scams from India. These vids are so funny!! This guy wrote a program to flood their lines with 39 calls per second. The scammers can't call out and every call they get is from this guy's server. The scammers get so pissed off! Hilarious!!
