There is a scam going around other forums where members are being contacted and asked if they would like to be Moderators etc.
The members is then asked for his password.
Looks like the scammer uses MSN and other message systems with an unverified email address from the forum to look official.
There is no reason for anyone from this or any other forum to ask for your password.
Keep Your Passwords Secure
