Security Caution re: Auction Arms e-mails
Copied from the CSP web forums:
I just received an account update request from AuctionArms. The request is extremely unprofessional. The link title is NOT the actual link title. In addition, I was asked to enter my "nickname" and password over an INSECURE link. In other words, the heading was "http", not "https" (which indicates a secure link).
I logged into the REAL AuctionArms site and there was NO mention on their site of an account update. I attempted to register with AuctionArms just to see what would happen and, as expected, was immediately switched to a secure link (i.e., "https" in the title).
The account update request looks just like the real thing. I highly suspect it is not, but is some attempt by a scammer to get confidential information.
Careful who you reply to.
