    Default Spammers...

    I just receive email from TOH.com
    They're saying that I failed to log in 5 times and my account is suspend.
    I know it is not my IP address and the link isn't kosher.

    Be very careful Ladies and Gents.
    Do not click on link via email. Just deleted it.


    Dear BigWalt,

    Your account on TOH Discussions has been locked because someone has tried to log into the account with the wrong password more than 5 times. You will be able to attempt to log in again in another 15 minutes.

    The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.

    Don't forget that the password is case sensitive. Forgotten your password? Use the link below:

    All the best,
    TOH Discussions

    I just got the same e-mail. Actually I stopped visiting this site because it kept bouncing me out. Oh well.

    I got mine - Deleted!

    That's the beauty of junk mailboxes that you rarely check.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    And thank you, Sprucey... for the reminder about my other mailbox. Good grief. Haven't checked that thing in a month or more. Sure enough.......there it was. Nice to know I wasn't overlooked.

    Deleted. Done deal.

    Could it be someone was trying to guess your password so they could change a post and report it to the admin?
