Retireed2 Thanks! For your sincere welcome.
Norfolk Friends may have been infiltrated by a phishing scam through emails to members. I checked the forum owners web site and they issued a warning Dec. 2015 re-Phishing scam. I will post the message here to alert Norfolk Community Forum Members and give members a heads up of the email phishing scam.

"Hello,

We noticed that many of our users tend to ask us questions about the veracity of an email
that they received from a sender claiming to be Forumotion and asking them to update their
forum or some of it's features, earn credits, etc. by downloading an application and run it
on admin computer. After that, admin must gives his forum URL, user name and password to get the update.

We're here to warn you that these emails have absolutely no relation with Forumotion!
These are phishing & malicious emails. Forumotion or its staffs will never ask you to provide your password to maintain or update the forum.
This is clearly a phishing attempt. Be careful; if you receive an email like this, don't click on links
nor install the software or give your login info!

Best regards

Norton1
