    There's a new scam going around involving Fraps. A member offers you a link to download Fraps, either to just give you a "freebie" or so you can run some benchmarks on hardware they are interested in buying from you.

    This download installs a keylogger. They are after your logins for paypal, WoW and anything else they can get their grubby little paws on. Don't do it!

    So far we have banned Jamieson and bmp ex for trying to spread this malware here. If you have a trade pending with either of them, get out of it ASAP.

    If anyone contacts you offering Fraps or any other downloads, please PM me with the full info, including links (please do not post any links here).

    Downloading warez is not only illegal and wrong, but it can cost you dearly if you fall for this scam.

    I've also posted this in Tips/Tricks & Trolls where I'll leave the thread open for discussion. But I know a lot of you don't check that as often as FS/T and you need to be aware of this scam.
