Sign warning

I just setup an account with you a few days ago. And have been going in and out looking at different things. With no warnings . All of a sudden I'm getting an email that someone is trying to sign in with my login. What do i do?


Thanks
Rob

What you have done is the right thing, be sure to send a PM to the web master who owns the site here too.

Thanks

Hello robs9,


Go to the home page and then scroll down the page to leave a message to to the web master with the description of the problem and if possible the url of the offender if you can find it.

I have to do chores now so.....

Hello robs, welcome to SBF. The upper right corner of all the forum pages, next to the red tractor, has a tab labeled "contact us". You can reach the ADMIN from here to request action on your problem.

Toro 8/24 (38080) 1989
Toro 421-QZE (38585) 2008

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

So far no. But I have not been using the site for a day or so. I will report here if I do. Is that ok?

That IP is showing as being from Connecticut. I've blocked it on our end.
