Subject: Beware of Fake Emails

We will never send out mass emails to the entire membership. We never send out email asking you to confirm your callsign and password. If you receive such an email, it is fake. Do not click any links on this email. They are trying to trick you to signing in on a fake site, then they will steal your password to post spam messages on this discussion forum.

We never send out email reminding you to purchase Qsonet. If you receive such an email, do not click any links on the email. They are trying to trick you into entering your credit card on a fake web site.

You are perfectly safe if you ONLY enter your password when you click account on the Qsonet web site. And you ONLY pay after clicking the Purchase button after signing into your account page.

I don't want to raise alarm and these problems have not happened here. But I want everyone to realize the internet is a wild place, and these tricks are very common across the web. Always be careful with received emails because they are easily forged.

When you give a password or credit card on the internet, always be sure the lock or key icon is showing. This icon ensures everything is encrypted and its going to a legitimate destination.
