    Has anyone else received an email purporting to be from Reptile Classifieds requesting password info etc or your account will be terminated?
    It's obviously a scam so beware.

    It could not be a scam, a good way too see is hover over the link or copy paste it into word and see if it is the real RC site

    It has been sent as a reply to one of my adds so it looks like a communication from RC but the gmail address it asks you to reply to is not RC's email, I sent a copy to Shaun but it's something anyone could do sending it as an enquiry, it does not mean the site has been hacked.

    That's what it looks like, comes as a genuine enquiry and shows up in the chain of past email enquiries so can be confusing.

    So email the site admin , not from any link in the email and ask them.

    Betting they'll tell you it wasn't their email.
