Beware scam alert!

Recommended Posts

There is a scammer among us who asks for hand advice via private message, but his link takes you to a fake pocketfives-looking log-in page.  This person is fishing for your password in hopes your poker site and/or paypal password is the same.  Several people have already fallen victim to this scammer, and we flag the known accounts to try and prevent further spread of this scumbag's actions.  However, we don't know who's account he's controlling until he does it again.  Thankfully most of our members are smart enough to suspect foul play and report his private message, and we ask that you continue to do so.  If you are prompted to log-in to "review a hand",  don't do it and don't respond.  Double check the URL of the link, then report the PM promptly, even if it seems slightly suspicious.

Several more phishing attempts this week were reported by our members. We really appreciate your help in stomping this scammer as soon as possible when he gains access to another account. If someone is asking you for hand advice or to review a hand via private message, please do not click the link.

All compromised accounts in the last month.  I'm sure there's more.  Be aware.

The scammer has been at it again and unfortunately some members have fallen for the scam by clicking his "Can you review it?" link which is a fishing attempt for your passwords.   Please don't click links from anyone via messenger or your account here and elsewhere may be compromised.
The following accounts have recently been compromised or created by the scammer himself;

Can we get an status update? Has the malicious user been eliminated or are you still playing whack-a-mole with this person?

its still happening.
These accounts have been recently compromised.  Do not click any links asking for you to review a hand.  In fact do not click links from anyone via private message as it is most likely a phishing attempt.

tritu was compromised but I believe we're good now.  However, if you got a weird PM from him don't click it.
