Thanks! Thatís what our IT folks taught us. Also, I clicked once on a friendly personal message when I first joined RF and it caused a bunch of headaches.

Change your password, now!!

Then, go to the sale ad and click the triangle with exclamation point to the left of the ad. Type a message for the Mods to get the ad removed.

I keep getting emails saying that some one has tried to login into to my account

Dear Aud5G,

Someone has tried to log into your account on Rolex Forums - Rolex Watch Forum with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 81.105.203.194

All the best,
Rolex Forums - Rolex Watch Forum

I emailed support they said I should post it onto the forums
I have no issues logging in or posting . The IP address does not belong to me I have had 40 or so emails like this.
I can ignore it but I thought to bring it up to the forum as suggested

Thanks

I just got an email stating that I have a PM from takuya and when I clicked the link to log in, it was definitely a fishing scam. I closed the browser and the logged into the real forum and sure enough there is no PM waiting. These scammers are scum.
