Scam mail from this site

Post by Pierre » Sat Apr 20, 2019 9:06 am

I have just received 2 scam mails with links and a very good copy of this site's notification of a PM with a link to go and read it, luckily I also have a good internet anti virus and the message contains some Chinese, or similar, characters. Dont click on the link. If you get one just go directly into the site and check the PM box above. If you block the senders domain you will block this site as well.

Have any of you used Tapatalk ?
I used to, but it became insecure.
It’s déçue window allows spoofing, even though the site itself is not compromised

No Precisely as you say its insecure; like you I tried it but after a week I deleted the lot, I dont even use facebook etc again for the same reasons, I spend most of my time remotely repairing my father's problems on facebook even though I have set the most stringent access rights. Essentially, these people will have 'scraped' as many email addresses as possible either by their own bots or by buying them on the dark web, then they set up a bot to email groups in the hopes of a 1 in a 1000 catch and they either get access to that person's computer data or they use them as a remote terminal to spread more misery.
