BEWARE of an inbox scam with the link: get your VIP shopping deals please visit

DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK For: get your VIP shopping deals please visit, provided in the inbox message. It is a click scam and the link links back to BLISS INSTALLS DOT COM malware site. Just a heads up.

I got another one from another username. Reported it to the admins, hope they will take care of it ASAP.
The myth on the Internet is that Canadians are nice people. Those people who say this just haven't been on RFD.

Same here.
I inspected the link and it was obviously not what it seemed to be.

Yup. Looks like they have multiple usernames. I got one from "foisneaker" . Registered on RFD at 1:13am May 19th

I thought it was a phishing attempt. Didn't click the link.

If I had to take a guess, it's no coincidence that all of us in here are established RFDers and have a few thousand posts. If it's malware/phishing attempt, I wouldn't be surprised if they were trying to get our credentials for RFD shenanigans

I just banned all the accounts mentioned so far. I also added the URL to the censor so hopefully that'll prevent the links in future ones from not working. We'll continue to monitor and ban any accounts we see spamming this.
