    An aged account that's been inactive for a while suddenly using an Australian IP address when the real owner is from India and scamming a member.

    The IP address is similar to the one used by the scammer who hacked @BusinessMagnet's account not too long ago. Actually, now that I look at it, the IP is pointing to the exact same location as the hacker. This happens when the account owners become inactive and don't enable two-step, by the way. This is why we keep telling all of you to enable two-step. https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/important-account-security.879700/

    I've banned the account along with the other accounts the scammer has accessed recently, but next time DON'T TRY TO BUY ANYTHING FROM YELLOW MEMBERS!There's a reason yellow members aren't allowed to sell here, yet time and time again this rule gets ignored.

    I suggest that you read my BHW safety guide: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/avoiding-scams-staying-safe-on-black-hat-world.884947/
