Password request - not me sir

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not been on here for a while, and the only reason i have popped back on tonight is that i have had an email stating the someone has requested to try and change my password

    In the email i received is a confirmation code and a link, which i have not clicked on, and a IP address which state is where the request if from

    Now a couple of things

    A. someone has tried to register the same user name as me, found it has been taken

    B. someone has tried to access my account on this forum and for what reason i can only guess but obviously up to no good

    Has anyone else had a similar problem

    Cheers Bert
  2. Sounds like potential SPAM to me

  3. Yeah quite possible :pissedoff:

    have just used an IP address tracer, would appear who ever has tried is based in or near Kildare Ireland

    Not sure how accurate that is as it tells me my IP address show me to be in Cambridgeshire, and not Somerset
  4. Personally I'd suspect option A - especially with a username like yours which is likely to be popular
  5. Correct!

    Have you ever popped your full name into Yahoo.

    When I bought the house a while back I was given a list of names similar to myself all bankrupt. One was a taxi driver in Birmingham. I had to declare I was not any of these people.

    You could be Albert, Robert, Rupert,
