    Got an email from and a call from a ham this morning about a scam post on QRZ. Then I got this email.
    I might be wrong but you decide. When I asked for a call sign this is the reply

    I'm working undercover, hi.

    Change your password, report to QRZ. Post in Scams forum warning everyone. Update your bio that you're not selling/buying anything. Check your computers for malware/spyware/viruses.

    Technically speaking, people don't "hack" QRZ. What they hack is other people's passwords. Then, they log in using the stolen password and their "hack" is complete.

    We take a dim view of users who are unable to secure their own password. It's their job, not ours. If someone else logs in under your account, the first thing that happens is that your account is immediately CLOSED (banned) and is reopened only after we receive positive proof of identity. Even then, you will then be REQUIRED to use our 2FA procedures for future logins.

    I use 2FA, and you (and everybody else) should too.
