I was hacked.....

This just happened in the last two hours. Fortunately one of the TRF members he contacted responded quickly. I've since changed my password but he did send a few messages like the below.

The pics posted below match the other PM's he sent (style, poses, etc...)

Itís confusing.

I suppose the first ďtellĒ is that you havenít posted for almost 5 years - so, thereís that.

And now we wouldnít know if this is the real you, or a hacker posing as you, and saying your ID was hacked.

Are you saying your TRF ID was hijacked and PMs were being sent?

Or only emails were being sent posing as you?

Grateful for your caution, Tim. Because the scammers are getting more sly, we canít be too cautious. Especially with him posting an entire advert with phone number.

Maybe a good idea to redact that phone number until itís sorted?

If the OP is genuine, he can email Steve to be validated.
