Rolexforums has been blocked from my internet provider due to a phishing scam report.

I turned off my WiFi and now on my cell network. Is anyone else seeing this notice?

I wonder if it’s due to the increase in scam posts I’ve seen recently. Maybe the site had been reported?

Anyone else?

I see this on some wi-fi providers with tapatalk as well. Probably a generic trigger against the underlying tapatalk software but it makes me curious as well.

It literally just started this afternoon for me.

I was reading about a scam on TRF of a guy who wired money for a Daytona. I wonder if when he reported it to his Bank could this be part of the banks process?

Not at all blaming him just wondering. I feel for his situation.

Did you open a photo from a private message? For example, look at a potential watch to purchase?

Got any screen shots?

Seems quite specific, as well as being wrong.

Blocked by my ISP as well.

Labeled as ‘phishing’

Any fix for this?

You can still access by clicking on "visit this site". Depending on where you are browsing from it may actually be your organisation's filters that have picked up TRF as a "suspicious" site if it has been reported, or was under attack. If you have a VPN, try that as it should put a gate between you and the filter. You can also add the site to your browsers trusted sites via the certificate - just google "how to add a trusted site to safari/chrome/ie"
