FanBox is a scam

You will receive message. It will say that someone you know (their actual name) has posted a question for you, or a photo for you to see. You click the link and are asked to enter the password for your e-mail account. If you do, FanBox will send messages to all your friends telling them that their friend (your name) has posted a question for them, or a photo for them to see. And on it goes. The real fun is that FanBox steals your portfolio photo from other websites and posts it on their website. Thus, I have never created a FanBox account, but I have one anyway, with my photo on it, so my friends will be fooled into thinking I am on FanBox and will fall for the scam themselves. So remember, NEVER type a password for anything into FanBox.
