firstname.lastname@example.org and now email@example.com are both from banned 2+2 accounts.
nlnut is a 100% reliable 2+2 member.
Scammers like to use good names for their outside accounts.
Most of us know better than to even open unknown e-mails much less click links in them.
How did you receive an e-mail when your e-mail is not listed in your profile?
Thanks for the Malware link. I downloaded it and am running a scan now.
I don't know how I received an email. It's the first time I've received one from a 2+2 member. It said it was from 2+2 member bustinnuts and it had several links in it.
I know I'm an idiot for clicking the link as I totally know better. I claim the poker-deprivation insanity plea.
Bustinnuts has replied to my post itt saying he sent me an email, so if those emails are banned then I think he is obviously connected to the one that emailed me. Plus his only post are from yesterday, which seems pretty fishy.
After this happened I changed my 2+2 pw and went in my account and unchecked the "receive emails from 2+2 members" box. But, it looked like a legit email from 2+2 and I think one of the links even brought me to the forum.
Anyways, I've learned a big lesson (that I already new) and wanted to warn others. Since this was my first time trying to do a p2p transfer and I really want to get funds on the sight, I did something I know not to do. And since I see a lot of others that are fairly new here (low # post) I thought it a good thing to share about not opening emails, or better yet disabling the emails to avoid what happened to me.
Plus, I wanted to bring it to the attention of the mods to checkout sn bustinnuts.
Thanks for the help. I will proceed with caution...
