I recently posted a question on the Adobe Photoshop Elements Forum and received a private forum message copied below. I sent an e mail to Adobecare@mail2expert.com and received a reply asking for my Adobe ID  and password. This is obviously a phishing scam. Just though I would warn everyone. Is there anything the moderators can do to stop this?

 

Kind regards

Chris

For anyone else reading this
.
Never post private information on a public forum... including your actual email address or phone number
.
Scammers try to steal serial numbers and other private information by posing as Adobe employees... Never give your private information to someone who contacts you via PM (Private Message) with an email of
"whatever" @ "anything other than adobe.com"
since this is a FAKE support person
.
Also, Adobe does not use Skype... if someone asks you to talk to them via Skype to "help" you, immediately report their Adobe ID in https://community.adobe.com/t5/Spam-Reports/bd-p/spam-reports so the person may be banned from the forums
