It seems someone is going on MSN Messenger pretending to be an administrator/webmaster for some popular bulletin boards, claiming they'll make you a mod but they need your password to verify who you are through MSN chat. They make it sound good and have an answer for everything - but don't get fooled. This scam seems to be spreading from what I have read...
Discusscooking admins and site helpers will never ask you for your DC password.
We have no reason to ask for it and we don't need it to make any changes to your account. If you need a reminder for your password, you can Contact Us
and request a reminder be sent by the system.
This scam probably won't hit DC, but I don't think it hurts to let everyone know about it. I will do everything I can to protect this community.
