I received a private message from user: jacobmayes94.

The content of the message is pasted below:

Hi jamie1029

I've replied to you:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2267392.0



I clicked on the link and it told me I need to log in as my session expired. I thought that was pretty weird as my session shouldn't have expired.
I checked the link URL and it resolved to this address (CAREFUL, if it's a scam link then probably don't click)

Anyway, by this point it looks definitely a scam link, curiosity got the better of me so I put it a FAKE password to that link, I put '%^%$$ YOU SCAMMER'. Then after putting that in it redirected me back to my account (it didn't say incorrect password).

So I just want your thoughts on the above. Definitely a scam link right? Has this happened to other people?

I'm quite worried now. I didn't put my password in that link at all. But even visiting it... can I be sure there is no keylogger on my computer etc? I noticed it's a http link and not https....
