RE: Automatic Renewal of Insider Account
I am so sorry to hear that you had problems while over at that site critical of PayPal. When I saw your post, I called a friend of mine who works in PC support. His shop has a 'sandbox' computer they use to test suspect sites (they can reload the software into that machine in only a few minutes, and he tells me they have to do it quite often!) He must have tested it 20 hours after you posted your message. He tells me he found nothing amiss, but did not have time to open more than a few message threads. But, there are #%^*^$#^&$ who hack into message boards and upload malicious software there. I was doing a search the other day, and found what looked like a interesing article on the forum of nj.com, run by New Jersey newspapers such as the Star-Ledger, which publishes the Munchmobile New Jersey Hot Dog reports. Well, someone hacked the forum and put in a redirect for a fake scan page. Luckily, my Anti-Virus knew about it and blocked the page. It can happen to all kinds of legitimate web sites. I haven't been to that site critical of PayPal in ages. But, I never had any problems when I went over there. The reason I went there was because friends of mine asked me to help them straighten out problems with PayPal. I found a lot of posts there that told the unvarnished version of how PalPay works. It allowed me to advise my friends about how to go for PayPal's jugular. I don't get called anymore because my friends now avoid PayPal.
