Here are some helpful tips to try to avoid or minimize the chances of getting phished scammed:

Do not post your email address in threads, posts or replies. If you want to reach each other, please do so via private messages.

Do not click on links users send you via private message or on the board that ask you to input any personal information such as your email address.

If you do decide to extend your private message communication to email, do not use an email address that you use for anything else.
