    Jerry , Aug 14, 2014 :
    It has come to our attention that a few people in our community received emails (see below) from someone pretending to be affiliated with OnePlus. Let us make this clear: although it looks like the e-mails were sent from account@oneplus.net, we did not send these emails.

    "E-mail Address Spoofing" is the one of the oldest and easiest tricks in the spammer's toolbox. It is used by many spammers to falsify the header information in their e-mail advertisements. By changing the header information someone can make the email appear to come from whoever they choose.

    It is important to note that spammers don't need access to the mail server of the address they are using.

    We have already taken all the possible actions to avoid this same person to do this again, however, it's important that you become conscious of the information you share on-line:

    Never disclose any personal information, including your email, publicly in the forums. We ask everyone to follow our forum rules, especially those regarding privacy, in the future to avoid future incidents. For those who want to share their invites with others, please do so through PM. If you see any suspicious contests or phishing scams, please report the thread to a mod immediately.

    We will be doing our best to find the party behind these emails and will provide an update if we obtain additional information.

    Ignore the following emails:

    Well, it seems many lack common sense. Then there's the people who say 'post your email for an invite'. I guess they've never heard of a PM.

    This should have been made clear in the contest threads too, which talk about banning forum members who sell, link external contests or like-farm for invites. There is a lack of guidelines for forum members to giveaway invites, which can lead to phishing, scamming and trolling along with other stupidity.
