 Beware unknown tractor sites

I just received an email that said something like "You have a new private message at TractorXXXXX.com", where XXXXX was another word (don't want to give them publicity here).

They *almost* got me. I figured it was TractorPoint and almost clicked when I realized that it was not. Now it may be a scam site, or a phishing site, or just some schmoe who is using spam to promote his site, but you've got to read those subject lines and sender address carefully to prevent getting sucked in.

Just a warning to be careful out there, scammers are getting more and more clever. Bastards.

Humm, I got one the other day and wondered if they were really doing what the email said but did not check to see it true or not.

Ken,

What you probably got was a mass email sent out by the new owner of said website attempting to inform old members in the data base of the change of ownership and to log in for a look.

Is your email still the Qsolve addy? I can email you the details.

I guess we can't let our guard down on about anything. A report on the local news a night ot two ago about fake census takers either calling or coming to the door wanting to confirm sometghing on your fourm, really all they are after is your SS number, etc.
I haven't gotten a "YOU HAVE WON' letter or E-mail for a while now, that must be old tech in the scamming world.
