    My thought exactly.

    I did think that a few weeks ago when he sounded almost reasonable in some of the pit threads.

    Quite strange. Last proper post was about 2 days ago.

    Does mean that there may be fewer Tories are great posts which is a bonus and less SC activity

    Can't say I've had the courage to click on any links.

    It was all a bit strange a couple of weeks ago as I got messages saying the my Facebook account had been hacked (different email address) where someone had put loads of dieting ads in my Photo Albums..

    Then later that day, I couldn’t log into my Amazon account (managed to get that sorted). Although my Google account had been hacked so that all emails from Amazon were blocked by a filter!

    But the real bummer was someone had changed my Google (and hence email). Every time, I reset it my sending a link to my mobile, they had changed it again until I added authentication. At which point they couldn’t get back into my account.

    Looking through all the devices that had logged in one was an Samsung device in Spain!

    As I said to Seedog.. my friend suggested I put my email in a site called https://haveibeenpwned.com/

    And loads of data breaches came up :( certainly worth checking.

    I’ve been slowing swapping over emails and changing passwords with random characters in..a long process :(

    I'd recommend downloading 1Password, LastPass or Bitwarden. Will help a lot.

    I can understand a felon hacking an Amazon account because they will make money from it. But what is the point in hacking a WIS forum members identity as there is nothing to gain.

    Probably they were looking for your wisdom on a myriad of subjects Mick.😂

    They spammed out links to sites which will no doubt end in harm. Either something on your computer or a phishing attack to gain your Amazon etc details later on.

    When you have a second go through your most recent posts and edit them to remove the links.

    Thanks for reminding me, all deleted or edited…

    I actually use eWallet for all my passwords and it has a random password generator built in. It works across all platforms too :)

    I imagine the ones you just erased (e.g. in the Omega thread).

    I think that was one with all the Viagra spam? I thought maybe he was referring to a BP post :)
