Exclamation Suspicious links

I have noticed that there are several posts from new members registered yesterday (Saturday 30.01.2016) which contain links.
See posts "E-5 cable remotes stopped working", " Safely saving or salvaging your photos on PC" and "Help: recover files from SD-card".
I do not say that these posts are bad, but I would be very careful before following the links.

Re: Suspicious links

Thanks I replied to the first one I opened but when I opened one of the others to find the same named link I backed out thanks David.
