    If you have received a private message asking you to vote please notify admins and do not, under any circumstances, follow any links contained within the message.

    We believe this to be a phishing scam attempting to get account information.

    Cool thx. I got one but didn't open it. It looked "phishy" to me. I actually emptied my inbox so I don't see it there anymore.

  6. I didn't get one. I guess the phishers didn't think I had anything worth stealing. :D

    I wondered if anyone else knew about this--- I received a private message but I was immediately suspicious because a) the acronym of whatever group it represented didn't seem to bear any relation to UO or Stratics and b) it threatened suspension or banning if I didn't participate.

    I was like W-T-H, the Stratics admins can't possibly be THAT evil to get a poll going. ;)

    I believe the sendername of mine was poll mods. Any admins, feel free, the message is sitting in my inbox... I don't see any option to report it to admin or anything.

    *sigh* If it's not one scam, it's 10 others.

    I saw this PM pop up while I was checking the forums at work today.

    Thankfully, I was busy reloading a computer and didn't take the time to open it. I usually shy away from things that aren't sent from friends anyway.

    Just noticed it's gone from my Inbox...Thank you for removing it! :)
