Dearest Brood Brothers and Sisters,

Got a PM today on the board from someone named GregLypE, claiming he was raising funds for warphadow.

THIS IS A SCAM.

Do not click the link, do not donate any money. We had a fundraising drive once, a couple of years back, and it was posted very publicly on the boards. I have since been paying our annual hosting fees out of pocket.

Don't every believe something you only hear in a PM. If we wanted to raise funds for WS, you would hear about it publicly from Yaleling or Vonny, in a main forum.

I hope I can catch this before anyone is tricked, and I'll speak to the administration team about how they'd like to deal with situations like this in the future.

Also, if you ever get a sketchy PM, you should definitely post and ask about it. Remember that you can always check how long someone has been on the boards and how many posts they have as a preliminary way of vetting them, then you can ask other forum members about them before doing anything that would compromise your account or your finances.

If anyone has questions/funny business to report, please post them here.

Thanks!
