Reference Check email PHISHING

Got the below message in my inbox today. The link (removed) opens a new window that asks for my login information for TRF. Sneaky, sneaky . . .

Reference check
Hello Mate,

How are you doing today? fine i presume, I am in the middle of completing purchase with Brad (Berkjewel) who recently posted a Rolex Sky-Dweller 326934 Jubilee Blue Dial Complete 2021.




He has mentioned you and providing me with your username as one of his reference, below is the sales details.



[Link Removed]

Await your reference confirmation for Brad (Berkjewel).



Thanks Dustin O'neil

Exactly. I just saw this thread and banned that account but he's been active for the last 12 hours.

Just got the identical PM text but from new user eagle1201... perhaps an IP check between those accounts with a block on that?

somebody should alert BerkJewel as well since he seems to be a legit user caught up in this nonsense.

I also received the identical PM from eagle1202 in New York. He has zero posts and joined yesterday. I reported the PM as suspicious since I don't know him or "Brad", and don't click on links from people I don't know.

Typo in my post... the user was eagle1202... I reported this to lol-x and flagged the PM as spam
