WARNING -- Scam

Some of us have been steered to photobucket.com as a convenient place to upload graphics for our posts to these forums.

I did this and got scammed. When your registration is accepted it is very easy to follow their suggestion to enter your cell number (see the screen shot below). When you do this you will start to receive "premium text messages" which your cell provider will bill you for at the rate of $9.99 per message.

DON'T GIVE THEM YOUR CELL NUMBER.

I would go further and not have anything to do with a site that associates itself with such scam.

BOYCOTT photobucket.com !!
