Hello, since I don't know exactly how to report any private messages, I'm making a thread on a fishing attempt by a user of the forums:

Here is a personal message I got from JarlMezentius:

Code:
Hi I saw a thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=276623.0
  about giving 0.002 btc (2$) just to get your signature
Do you know if it is real or it is just scam ?

Now, it might not seem suspicious, BUT the link doesn't route you to bitcointalk.org, it takes me to:  http://bitcointalk.yzi.me/indexphp%3Ftopic%3D276623.0/index.html <------ DO NOT GO HERE

As can be seen, it's a fishing site.

His username profile is:  https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=146923  



Hope this helps, and if someone can tell me an easier way to report this, thanks.

Regards,
Bitcoinpsftp

You can report PMs by clicking "Report To Admin" in the lower right corner.

Yes, I found it.  Thanks.  I think I'll keep this up though, just as a heads up for anyone else that might receive such messages.  Thank god I have "stay logged in" on all sites.  If for example, this site was proned to logging me out randomly at times, I wouldn't have given the address bar a second look.  Sometimes it's scary how close one can get to being fished.  I've on various occasions clicked on links from services I use and signed in, without checking address bar, only to 5 minutes later realize how easily it could have been a fishing attempt.
