That's correct. Had not seen thread, nor had it posted user name when I made this one.

Stay safe.

He got me with the link...

Unfortunately, I signed in and then looked up at the URL only after. Had to reset my password immediately after.

I loved my old password too.

He got me. It might be related to me just recently seeing my name used for a rolex hulk on watchnet.com posted earlier today with a similar, but bogus email.
