Someone is Phishing for your information in your computer as soon as you click on it you just opened the door to your information. Its scary as these message come from what looks like legitimate trusted sources like banks, credit unions, manufacture coupons, Trifive, etc. I thought I was good at filtering these messages but I got one for UPS tracking and clicked on it thank god the McAfee security caught it.
Just a note of caution. When I got the banned message here on this site (comes up on vBulletin Message), I clicked on the red highlighted contact administrator tab and the next day when I went to log online a window came up on my computer saying IP address used by someone, identity theft don't shut off computer call this number now ( looked like a legit Microsoft windows message) . All the while a very loud honking noise going off. Didn't call the number as I was suspicious , turned computer off and back on , same thing. Noise is driving me nuts, wife is on the other side off the house and it's annoying her to. Everything locked up. Finally hit Ctrl button and it stopped, screen went away. Did several security scans, Kaspersky, Windows security' no problems detected. No problems since. But my nerves were shot by the time I got it shut off. The banned message still comes up before I login.
My IP has been banned. I get this notification every time I try to log in. I may/may not be able to post. Even after I successfully log in, I get the notice that I may not post or reply to posts. This occurs several times a day, if I try multiple times to log in or post. This is nuts!! What gives?
