Icon4 Personal Message scam ***** pm scam **** pm scam

Keep reporting the "phishing" scam pms so we can weed out these conmen and scam artists..

We have a rash of pms to members about buying/selling a watch and then tells them they must log-on at a link provided.

These scams are there to steal your log-in information

DO NOT click on links in personal messages you receive.

Beware, report, stay vigilant so that we can have a better Forum.
