|Phishing - Calls, Emails, SMS & Skype
||If you have received an email, SMS. message on Skype or even a telephone call from someone claiming to be from SwingFree.co.uk or suggesting that you need to verify or provide login details to them, then you have been targeted by a phishing attack.
Phishing is when someone tricks you into giving out your login details and then they take over your profile, withdraw your funds and worse.
The message may ask you to provide personal information or to click on a link that takes you to a "lookalike" SwingFree.co.uk Site where you are asked to "Login". Doing so enables these criminals to get your real login information which they then use to access your SwingFree.co.uk Profile.
Please be vigilent, it seems that all forms of communication are being used to try and fool unsuspecting members into giving out their personal information:
AdultWork.com NEVER send messages asking for your details. Please ignore and report such messages via the Help Centre.
- Emails often say your profile will be deleted if you do not provide login details. Others say you need to do something or other, verify or provide a Ukash voucher code. Some emails are circulating inviting you to join a Group on the Site.
- SMS messages ask you to send your login details to an email address that looks like "adultwork" but is not actually firstname.lastname@example.org. One recent SMS message stating 'YOUR PROFILE IS NOT TRUST!' asking members to upload their documents to http://nonameeeee.esy.es/ is clearly a scam.
- Websites host pages that look like the SwingFree.co.uk login page, but all they do is capture your login details. Always check the URL is adultwork.com. Alternatively they may ask for the entry of a Ukash voucher code saying you need to pay for something. One recent email asks members to log into www.adultworksms.com/activate.htm - this is a scam and will re-direct you to a fake login page.
- Calls have been received by members where the caller is claiming to be performing some task for SwingFree.co.uk for which you need to give them information. This includes calls asking you to supply/re-supply your Verification documents. We would never call asking for this info.
- Internal Emails have been received by members where they have been sent AdultWork.com links to check.
The links show all the letters being in upper case - this hides the fact that the 'O' is in fact a zero e.g. http://WWW.ADULTW0RK.COM/PROFILEID= These links will re-direct you to a fake login page.
NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR LOGIN DETAILS, EVER.
Always check that the URL in your browser reads www.adultwork.com exactly and only. For example, adultwork.com.something.tk,r adultwork.zz.mu or adtwork.com are not legitimate sites.
If you think you may have been a victim of this scam change your password immediately. If you use the same password on your email account, change that too.
As a rule with any form of Internet-based communication, exercise caution when receiving emails, SMS or IMs requesting any kind of personal information. We will always ask for it to be uploaded to the Site and correspondence will always come from an @adultwork.com email address, (not something like email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, AdultWork@tech-center.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com,AdultWork-Account-Verification@europe.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, AdultWork-AccountVerification@rescueteam.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or Adultwork.Members@mail.escritoriosigma.com.br, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, ADULTWORK.INFO.UPDATES@sahivalue.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, Profileadultwork@yahoo.com, firstname.lastname@example.org), email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, UpdateAdultWork@email.com, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org

|Delivering email to Yahoo addresses
We regret that due to new anti-spam techniques deployed by Yahoo, some people may not be receiving e-mail from us.
It is not only ourselves that you may not be receiving mail from, this problem is affecting many sites.
Here is an interesting discussion of the situation.
Unfortunately despite our numerous attempts to contact Yahoo they are unable to comprehend the problem we're experiencing, despite it been due solely their own misguided rules.
Here's a help page at Yahoo. You will note that they make no mention of them deliberately refusing mail to make the server retry, (which they believe spammers will not do).
We would recommend you use the email account provided with your Internet connection provider. If this is not possible then Hotmail (.com) and Googlemail.com are the best free alternatives.
Change your email address here.
To meet with the requirements of most email providers our servers have reverse DNS and SPF records configured. To specifically meet with the requiremets of Yahoo, all mail is also tagged with the proper DomainKeys and DKIM security keys.
