    Again, one of our members has been a real hero and clicked on the report button. When I looked at the post, it had three links to supposed websites. English was obviously not the posters first language and the post barely made sense. In addition, there were three others using the same ISP. I don't want to be an alarmist but this could be a group of hackers in some third-world country. Thank you for your vigilance.

    NEVER, EVER GO TO A WEBSITE WITH A LINK IN A POST UNLESS THE POST IS BY SOMEONE YOU KNOW AND TRUST, LIKE ONE OF OUR ADMIN. AT PROHEALTH. IT'S MUCH SAFER TO DO A SEARCH YOURSELF AND FIND THE WEBSITE THAT WAY.

    The websites these links lead to may not be what they are supposed to be. Once you enter them, it may be too late and your computer may be hacked. It's sad that we have to be so careful but these people troll for places like this to try to lure people in with their spam. Two HUGE red flags are embedded links and poor use of English. Reporting them is a great way to help keep this website safe for our members.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Love, Mikie
