Has Kreslik been hacked?

Postby Edie » Wed Mar 06, 2013 3:28 am

I object strongly to being spammed by any forum that attempts to solicit me for my trading business.

I can not believe that Kreslik allows these people to blatantly use the forum to generate off-forum business.

I received a pm from member sten36 as follows:

Hello, my name is Kevin!

I am a professional trader with years of experience in the Forex market,
also I am a partner of the International Association of Forex Traders
(IAFT). I recommend you join this Association, as well as I did and other
100 000 traders.

Cooperation with the IAFT is very beneficial to any trader, since you will
receive some additional money for each transaction while doing
everything the same as before. The registration procedure takes only a
few minutes, it's very simple. In order to know the details, please click
here .

Also, after registering with the IAFT you, as well as me can become the
IAFT partner and invite your friends into their Association. In addition to
it, you will receive your percentage of the payouts to them. The IAFT - is
an offer you cannot refuse! There in the Forex market, only those who do
not know about the IAFT, do not join this Association.

If you have any questions - please contact me and I will be happy to help
you sort things out.
(I'm sorry if I took your time and this email reached you accidentally)


I think it is a poor business practice and very bad ethics to promote business through a private forum - we are here specifically so we do NOT get this kind of rubbish.

Thanks for you your attention to this matter.

I thought with all the layers of security one goes through just to get there, that this would not be occurring.

I do not like it
I do not want it.
Stop it.

Hi all!

This forum is fully funded from my own pocket. There are absolutely _NO_ paid ads of any kind here.

The message you received is a SPAM and senders of such spam will be banned.

Software this forum is running on is now 7 years old and doesn't cope well with various spamming attacks. The newest version of phpBB is now getting ready to be deployed here and I hope it will not take long.

I'm really sorry you and others are being spammed, but please consider that, as I said, this forum has absolutely no ads, thus no bias, but also no revenue and no team of professionals taking care of it on a daily basis which would kill the spamming attempts at the root immediately.

The new version of the forums shall fix most of the above problems. In the meantime, please do report to me or Avery any offenders.

Thanks a lot and happy trading!
Michal
