    Hacking attempts 5th Oct 17 at 11:37 AM
    Yesterday and again today I have had an email from MSE saying my access to my account was attempt with an incorrect password 5 times resulting in the accoubt being locked for 15 minutes. I checked the IP address provided...appears to be located in Croydon. What can I do to prevent this. Is there anything I can do?

    Hi. Martin has asked me to tell you I'm a (novice) Board Guide on the Competitions, Site Feedback and Campaigns boards. I'm a volunteer to help the boards run smoothly, and I can move and merge posts there. Board guides are not moderators and don't read every post. If you spot an abusive or illegal post then please report it to forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com (it's not part of my role to deal with abuse). Any views are mine and not the official line of MoneySavingExpert.com.

    Hi all, I replied to Rosylee earlier today.

    We get queries about this every now and then.

    Someone with a very similar username (they're case sensitive) seems to have tried to log into their own account but typed Rosylee's name by mistake.
