    Banned Email

    Got an email about people being banned that aren’t supposed to be banned. Just testing.

    Edit: Guess I'm good. I can't seem to delete this thread so if a mod could, that would be nice.

    Did the notification ask you to send $500 in Bitcoin to Russia?

    This email...

    Dear BK7saum,

    We have had a few issues with the website lately as far as people showing up as being banned when they were not suppose to. If you visit the website and it shows that you are banned and you know your not suppose to be; please let me know to see if I was able to resolve this issue. Thanks!

    As always you can sign up for a TEAM BOOLITS subscription at the top of Cast boolits. For all the added benefits!

    Very strange. I expected to find the usual in that email. But, no masked links. They actually point to where they say. Address is legit. Security looks legit. Nothing about it is off, forensically. (That I can see. I've been out of IT for almost a year.) But it is very, very odd.

    This is a legit email sent out by the webmaster.

    The site has been under attack by S&S scammers for some time but the scammers have amped up their game.

    The scammer’s MO is to created a screen name which looks similar to the seller’s name - example no_l instead of no_1. Once done they send a PM to one of the winners or buyers indication payment should be sent using PayPal F&F then request you follow up with a screen shot of the payment to another mail address.

    The moderators and myself have been blocking the higher risk / higher fraud ratings VPN’s the scammers have been using but some members who are using the same VPN’s are finding themselves unable to access the forum.

    As a result of complaints from those legit members, the webmaster has unblocked all VPN’s and is asking for any member who has been banned to contact him.

    Please be aware of potential increased scammer presence on the site.

    If you can see the forum when you’re logged in then you aren’t banned.
    Same with the PM system. If you can access your PM then you aren’t banned
    Don't like being hammered by the Cast Boolits Staff, then don't be a nail.
    The rules are simple to follow.
