A head’s-up to all my fellow writers (fan fiction and original fiction)
So last night I get an email about a new comment on one of my fan fics. I read the email, and the comment seemed shady as hell to me. But given it was late at night, I didn’t look into it until this morning.
The comment, screen-capped from my email:
I was able to confirm that this is in fact spam--and a possible phishing scam--on this Reddit thread. The OP on that thread got similar messages on their fanfiction.net account, with the links included being identical to the ones in my comment.
So just to make y’all aware, if you got this on one of your fics, make sure you’re reporting it as spam to whatever hosting platform you’re on.
