Expiring Membership (July 23 issue only)


Followers 0

Recommended Posts

I just received an email from noreply@geocaching.com advising that my premium membership had expired. The e-mail appears legitimate (i.e. not a phishing scam) but you never know. It includes a link to renew but the link is not valid (directs to localhost).

 

Puzzled, I checked my profile and my membership is good through October of this year. Wondering if anybody else has seen this.....

 

Here's the body of the message:

 

-----------------------------------------------------

Hello from Groundspeak!

 

This is just a quick note to let you know your Groundspeak Premium Membership for the username "HuggyFamily" has expired. You may continue to use Geocaching.com, Waymarking.com or Wherigo.com as a Basic Member, or create a new Premium Membership here:

 

http://localhost:2020/Membership/default.aspx

 

Thank you for supporting Groundspeak!

Cheers,

The Groundspeak Team

I just got an email saying my Premium Membership is expired but my profile shows that I am paid through June 4, 2010. Is anyone else getting an email like this?

 

Did it ask for personal information like a credit card number to "renew"? GS does send out notices if your on an auto-renew plan, not sure about non auto plans. It does not ask for any information. But it is asking for anything then it is a scam.

Those of you who received that email are still Premium Members in good standing: please rest assured. :D

There is no scam. There is no security breach.

 

An email process was accidentally triggered during testing. Sorry!

 

Now, where is that geocache?

Whew. I got that email too, but yeah, everything seemed in order when I visited the site.

You might want to look up in the magnolia tree. Hint: it's pink! :P:unsure:;):D
