Internet Scam Links on Newsletter.

Is anyone else getting a warning saying your computer is locked and you have to call a number to get it unlocked after clicking a link on the Fiberglass RV Forums Newsletter?

This morning I clicked on "20RVing Hacks You've Probably Never Heard Of" First MS Defender told me it was unsafe then a loud woman's voice said my computer was locked and I had to call a number to unlock it. Fortunately, all I had to do was close the browser and it went away.

This is the second time this has happened to me. Is anyone checking the links in these newsletters?

I'm running on a MacBook and I've not observed anything suspicious when clicking on the email's hyperlinks

I would recommend contacting a site administrator directly with details. Look in the ďCommunityĒ tab for the site team. It should give you contact links. You want an administrator, not a moderator. Janet has been helpful and responsive in the past.

Moderator’s note: I’ve moved this thread to the Admin Forum so that Janet or the Tech Admin will see it.
