    Beware of Thaivisa

    To contact an old friend who I knew used TV I made an account.
    Firstly I made a new E mail account to use for TV.
    Signed up to TV using never used email which apart from me was unknown.
    In the morning i received an email from company to say my email account was blocked and to contact them.
    Report from email company. Within 15 minutes of giving only TV the email address, someone tried to penetrate account with correct username. A further 2 attempts were made. What I find strange is I used a very unique username.


    First post but long time lurker.
    Cheers

    They can see your email address, no mystery there.

    Different

    Can you ask the company what passwords were tried with the username?

    Do you use a password manager ? Or similar passwords between accounts.

    A few years ago quite a few services would default to using the email addresse and password you signed up with to try to login to your Hotmail, Yahoo, Google Mail and then email spam to all your contacts.

    Did that before, ticked all the 'no email notification' 'no subscription' boxes. Signed in a month later to see 1,598,472 unread emails in my inbox by them.

    their servers are probably compromised, a junior hacker is probably catching all their emails with signup, and trying out password

    if your password is solid, shouldn't be a problem for your email account provider, even if they lock your account

    no big deal, ignore it

    All about needless and grotesque promotions, profitability, and leechy marketing.
    Has little to do with extensions of social media or community forums -

    Similar to the likes of FB, Twitter, and other major/minor players.
    They all enact such criminal and unethical activities.

    TVF is no different.

    If that is the only reason holding you back then I'd be happy to teach you how to get rid of their adverts.

    Fcuking aresole mods on TVF. I just got suspended for 3 days for 'flaming'. What did I use as a flame I hear yous ask. I called a poster an 'idiot'. I'll go wash my mouth out with soap.

    Note for member

    You are being warned for a flaming post you made toward another member, this is what you posted:

    ^^
    Another idiot.

    The tv mods are homos. If you forget your sign up name and email and sign up again they close the account claiming multiple accounts even though the old was used a year ago. Who uses their main email for forums full of spammers?

    . And yes "idiot" is a bad word to those 80yo crusties

    Call it an addiction but I can't help going over now and again and ruffling some feathers. What a bunch of 'teachers pets' they are.

    I've already got Adblock, which means I have to wait 30 seconds to view a page.
    Carn't be arsed, it's all a load of shite over there.
    I probably would make one post and get banned, at least will still have free speech over here.
