I wonder if its related to some of the bots that have gotten on here. They post the same message in many different forums. Though I haven't seen them in a few weeks.

If it ever asks you to "kindly" do something, its 100% a scammer/spam message.

I don't know what it is about the phrasing but every single craigslist scammer always says "kindly do this" or "kindly do that".

Also the broken english is a dead giveaway. Do not click.


My guess is that it is directing you to sign in at a fake page, then they will have your forum credentials which they will hope are your credentials to other, more important things.

If you did click it, and did try to sign in, change all your passwords that are the same, if any.

It would be a good idea to remove the link so no one else clicks it.
