    fecc mb is shut down again

    for elvis cd collectors mb is down again.
    i got an e-mail about this but i think this was a spam,
    because i had about 7 of these.

    i was on there site a few mints ago i got in and the people from fecc said they didnt
    sent any e-mails

    then i try to come back just now i couldny get in.

    oh well i have this to come to.

    Hi Curtis

    I got the same e- mails as well
    And I can't get on there either.
    I've been having trouble all week trying to get on the Fecc

    Don't know what the problem is.
    At least we can get on the TCB forum

    I received 7 messages from them also, and they all said the same thing, that I need new software to download to get to the site. Is this some sort of 'virus' or spam as you say Curtis? It had a link but I didn't use it.......

    Funny, I also got the 7 e-mails. Very strange message--I didn't try the link either. I guess if I had been trying to log in over there I might have been more inclined to do so (not a dig; I just don't have time to keep up with any Elvis site besides this one), but the wording of the message was just odd. It said in part:

    sorry but forum ist now cosed

    you need new software for acces

    Curtis, I actually thought you might have had a hand in it. Only kidding!
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    I think it must be spam.
    Because it's a bit weird that message(spellings not very good is it ?)

    I did not use the link either.

    I like TCB World better anyway

    Someone has just told me that the site was hacked into. Whether this is true or not, I don't know...but they should put something in the elvisnews site that something is wrong. Especially if someone uses the link given in the e-mails.....could cause a lot of problems.....

    Common sense would dictate that any legit MB / Forum is not going to shut it down & demand all members upload "software."

    Two-words: Viruses / Hackers.

    Just ignore, it will be fixed in due time.

    --------------------------

    Regarding FECC & here @ TCB-World:

    JMO, but both sites have their own positive & negative aspects.

    there's no limits for what hackers can do. always be careful what you get in your email. don't open or download anything you don't know what is

    What in the world is the matter with those people who have to spoil other people's fun by hacking and sending virusses. Why don't they hack the tax building or something?

    It's definately spam (or a virus) or something, because FECC did not send any emails to their members...

    If something weird like that should happen to this site, please first send an email to Albert, or one of the moderators and I'm sure one of us (or all of us ) will answer your question!

    Never download any software when you might get an email in which you are requested to do so...

    Bye,
    Sonny

    I got the e-mails on Wednesday. I have spamkiller from McAfee on my computer. It sent them to my blocked mail file. Having been alerted by the tcb-world mb I deleted them right away.
