    Just received the following email which is a ploy to gain access to your personal email account provider login information. The link in the email (which I removed) directs you to a bogus website page, certainly not google as portrayed on this page layout, requesting you to enter your email address and password in order to be able to view a shared document, see screenshot below.


    Here is the email:

    Perfect timing, when everyone is busy answering emails and won't be paying attention.
    Heads up, the crooks are always circling.

    I also just told responders to beware of a member that joined today, but gives no info on himself and is supposedly looking for 2 or 3 to go on a safari with in June - August.

    They are getting better and better at it too, even spammers. I have somehow gotten on some spam list and even though I block each sender, they generate new ones as quickly as I block them.

    ... once they hack his original address, they copy the contacts and can send repeatedly from new e-mail addresses, or even worse sell to other scam artist!!!

    A week or so ago I got a "discounted Rhino hunt" offer from AH. Was that legit or did we get hacked and maybe linked to something PETA would like a prospective Rhino hunter to click on?

    Yes it was legit as the email came from me/AH with the senders email being AfricaHunting.com<info@africahunting.com>. I send about twice a month links to hunt specials posted on AH to members.
