The account has been dealt with.

If you have any future issues that you'd liked solved quickly, you can directly send a PM to any head moderator, which would function similarly to the reporting button that you've described. Head moderators who are online appear in blue at the bottom of the main forum index, and will respond to your questions or requests in a timely manner.

Sekome probably replied to the initial phish pm and has become compromised. Unfortunately for him he has now lost his account here. Members are responsible for the security of their own accounts. Whether it is intentional or not, accounts which send substantiated phishing or viral pm's will be permanently closed.

If anyone else receives a similar PM, please report it to a head mod for review so appropriate action can be taken.


If any site asks for your password at any time, at least glance up at the URL bar to be sure you are on the site that you think you are, before typing it in. While thats not a guarantee of safety, in this case at least, it would certainly prevent loss of your account here.


Thanks, and surf safe.....

calimods was also compromised and has been suspended.
The members whose accounts may have been suspended need to contact myself or another Head Mod.
First thing is to change your old password. Change it via an address you typed in to reach XS NOT VIA A LINK. Also if you use the same password for your live account or anything else. Change it immediately.
If your account is supended and you made a new one contact me via the new and we will see if we can enable your old account for you to immediately change your password on the original account. I can then kill the new account.
The arsewipe that started this will be found and his ISP will be contacted which should mean he loses his account with his service provider and gets blacklisted.
sekone now has his account re-secured and enabled again.
Do not follow any Pm links supplied by this account previously. Delete the message.
