AudioGon scam?

FYI-Received this e-mail from Morrow Audio. Here is the cut and paste:

Dear fellow audiophiles,

I just received an email, apparently from
AudioGon, but it is not. It is an attempt to
steal your login information.

I felt it my duty to warn my customers and friends.

It says "Notice: AudioGon account restricted".
There is then a link to click that looks like it takes you
to their site, where you log in. Do not do it! It is a scam.
You can tell because of the URL, which is not AudioGon. The scammer
will steal your information, or change the password, selling bogus
items under your name.

Please pass the word to your friends...

Mike Morrow,
Morrow Audio

Re: AudioGon scam?

Thanks for the heads up.
Political Correctness...defined

A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Re: AudioGon scam?

I would apply the "do not click" to any link you get in an email stating they are from forums, or other sites you belong to.

Always go direct tot he site using the url you always use and check for messages.

Most websites know there are spammers and scammers and would never send a link to click unless you request it be sent (password change etc).
It is cruel, you know, that music should be so beautiful. It has the beauty of loneliness of pain: of strength and freedom. The beauty of disappointment and never-satisfied love. The cruel beauty of nature and everlasting beauty of monotony. - Benjamen Britten
