Lately there has been a daily barrage of obvious spammers applying for membership here at FRETS.NET.

Some time ago, I added those simple questions to weed out those bots or people who obviously don't belong, and every day I deny the membership to a dozen or more automated responses (usually two random letters).

Sometimes, though, I do manage to push the "deny" by accident.  PLEASE try again to register if that happens to you!

Got the report, dumped her this morning (I think)

I'm glad that didn't happen to me. :-)

Thanks Frank! I got a random phishing email through this site. It was easily recognizable so I just deleted it but in any case, I appreciate the due diligence! 

This morning I got a private message on my forum page from an Erica Woodward asking me to contact her privately on an email address. I reported it to Frank.

Also, I noticed in the site URL address I had a warning symbol and "Not Secure" message. I checked with Google and it said to replace the URL prefix with https://fretsnet....etc. Then the notice changed to a padlock icon and said Secure.



I just joined this forum within the last 24 hours.  I got a friend request from "member" Ronald Morris.  It sounded phishy so I looked at the membership list.  I doubt that someone from Togo has "something important to discuss" with me so I am not responding.  Having seen Mr. Ford's post about scammers, I thought it prudent to post this event here.

Perry -

Thanks for the heads up! As with any other "questionable" members, I dropped him immediately without comment. . .
