Still valid today.  Check any post history for a long dormant time followed immediatly by a lot of selling and/or loan activity.  These accounts are often hacked accounts.

Our family was terrorized by Homeland Security.  Read all about it here:  http://www.jmwagner.com/ and http://www.burtw.com/  Any donations to help us recover from the $300,000 in legal fees and forced donations to the Federal Asset Forfeiture slush fund are greatly appreciated!

*bump*

These guys are back. I don't know if they are targeting lending, but we've verified that they're targeting the free ripple giveaway, so keep an eye out for them.

Is there a way to verify oneself against this? I was inactive for a while after a gpu blowout, I'd hate to think of being tarred with this brush though.

You only have 16 posts anyway so this really does not apply to you.

Is there any dormant account policy?  I suggest those dormant accounts receive email notification like a warning that failure to respond or atleast login will cause their accounts locked or create a tag for those account  So when they're login again they can easily be identified.

I was wondering what ever happened to all those sockpuppet castoffs.

Nice catch!

But was access gained? Were the accounts actually compromised, or are the accounts simple extra accounts from established members?

We're looking to see what we can do to stop this, but it isn't easy. Especially since we allow logins from tor.

Yes, access was gained to these accounts and was used to get ripples. Some of them appear to have been made by bots, but others used to be someone's main account.

I just saw CanaryInTheMine request .1 BTC over in Currency Exchange. Not sure if that one was legit or not, but we'll find out later today I guess.

Edit: Nvm, he already paid back.
