Default Caution: DocHorton ID hijacked by scammer

Several weeks ago we were alerted by a user that he was having problems getting in touch with a user, "DocHorton," who had sold him parts, but not delivered them. In checking on the report, we learned that the person who registered that user ID had not been active on the site for several years and his ID had been hijacked by a scammer, who asked to be contacted by email at [email protected]. We disabled that user ID as soon as we got the report.

We've now heard from two other users who say they also were scammed by the person who hijacked the "DocHorton" user ID, obviously from PMs sent before the ban took place.

If you have received an unsolicited offer to sell you parts you need from "DocHorton" or anyone else you don't know, please let us know and we'll be glad to check on it. Meanwhile, do not participate in any transaction involving "DocHorton" or the above-referenced email address. If you get unsolicited offers via PM to sell you anything, please review the advice in this thread:

We have not been able to determine how the hijacking occurred on "DocHorton," but when we've seen that happen before it has been by someone who has sent a link which, if clicked, requests your user ID and password. Alternately, it can occur when someone has a simple, easily hacked password.
