    More cyber B.S.?

    Received an Email from "GreenTractorTalk" today regarding re-upping 2 year membership @$35.00. It contained 3 links that are not valid:

    mhtml:{782726EF-60E5-42CC-8C82-C377D60F3E0C}mid://00000000/!x-usc:http://gardentractortalk.com/forums/...do=view&id=911

    Is this yet another scam like the IRS call from a cell phone I got today?

    A big

    Per the banner on the opening page they we're recently hacked. This means all of your info is for sale on the dark web. Folks buy thousands of addresses related to something like this and other forums and then spam them with bogus deals.



    My guess is that with a Canadian company buying up all the boards it opened it up to the NSA to hack and get everyone's information IP address and info to link the posters to a person and location totally legally. Not a big focus for our forum but they also purchased all of the main gun forums etc.

    Can you forward that email you received to a staff member please?

    The link you posted goes to Garden Tractor Talk, not Green Tractor Talk. Are you or were you a member over there at some point?

    10-4, thanks and sorry for the confusion. I misread the forum name. This is the only forum I'm currently involved in so I hope you all can forgive me.
