    ATTN GEAR SWAP SHOPPERS / MAGGOTS

    There has been an unusual volume of scammers the last few days.

    We are taking them out as fast as we can but if your spidey-senses tingle at all during a transaction, it is telling you something.

    Right now we have three longtime maggots down with compromised accounts. If you have been logging into the site with h00k3rs4nd8L0w since 2003, please update it to something unique so we can stop these fuckers. And, feel free to report any too good to be true FS listings.

    To change your deets,
    - in edit settings of the form <- then go to email and password
    - then change your password at the top

    That should get you back into the app and forums, etc. So easy a dentist could do it.

    Good luck and stay safe.

    I had to change it in two places and then it worked.

    in the top bar, say you forgot and then when you get the reset link make it the same as what you did for the forums. Then the app will work.

    It's pretty safe to assume the exact same password was used with the same email in another site which was hacked. Hackers can pull a list easily of username/password combos and try them across a bunch of sites. If they are the same between sites then you are "hacked" without any issue occurring on the TGR side. Always best to use a different password for everything to avoid that.

    And they also have people's web history or do a lot of Russian hackers lurk around here?
    Like, if I had a bunch of login info and was looking to do some nefarious shit, I don't think TGR would be anywhere near as high on the list as Amazon, or Target, or eBay, or PayPal. I could keep going. How would they even know about TGR?

    I highly recommend PP goods and services unless you are sure you know the person you are dealing with really well. If they won't let you do that if you agree to pay an extra 5% for the fees run away!
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    Does the password changing actually work? I just tried via the webbrowser and got that it was successful, but went to log in with new password and it did not work...old password did.

    I did a password change yesterday that didn't seem to go through until a little bit ago. Not sure why? Maybe because I only changed it in one place before ml242's comments.

    Ironically, I went to try to change it again and needed my new password to change. But logout and log back in only with my old password. Hopefully I don't get become an iceman

    Yeah, the password change is not what I would call “seamless”

    Well that was a laugh, hacked while on a road trip.

    I hadn't changed my tgr password in ever, but luckily it's not one I've ever used anywhere else.

    Thanks Mods for the heads up and being on top of the bogus GS posts.
    Move upside and let the man go through...
