Before you click on ANY link on these forums, mouse over it to see where it leads. I got lead to a site demanding my mt.gox password once, luckily I spied the misshapen URL. For example, this link leads to mt.gox... or does it? (you can click that, the real URL behind that link is https://www.google.com/search?q=some%20spam%20site)
If you see any sort of link phishing like this, hit the Report to Moderator button or PM a moderator to get it removed. Also post something like "PHISHING" so people will not click on the link.

Stay safe out there. Wink
