September 18, 2008 9:39am CST
Hi everyone. Scavenger is a forum where we are paid for posting. I was working with that and got paid once($2). Yesterday when I tried to open, it just said that the forum is under maintenance. Now when I tried, its saying that the username doesn't exists. Whats happening with that??? Is that working well for you people??

The site got hacked . "News: ScavengerCash took a serious hacker attack, my database got infected with a virus and wiped the data out. I have yahoo technical support working on this root cause. The site is being rebuilt.... All members will have to register again. More info to follow." Guys, this site is NOT a SCAM! From the News Section by macdonar: All, here is what happened. At 6:30AM we had some kind of virus inside the database, it started to erase the database files, which was causing all the strange activity this morning. By 8:00 AM I completely lost my database as well as my backup database. I contact the Yahoo service center to try to recover and report the incidence. I am awaiting word on what they can do. As of right now, I am going to use the trust policy, please let me know approximately how many posts you had before the crash, so I can credit you on your post account. This attack should not happen again as now I have implemented a nightly back up on my local hard drive at my house. This was a great lesson learned by me and it made me realize that there are people out there that are just plain evil. Anyway, if you have any questions, please PM me, I will continue to rebuild the site as best I can. You have to sign up again. They will RETURN all the money that you earned.

One of my friends is also a member at that site. I asked her about this.Her experience was also something unacceptable. She said that the site was hacked yesterday and when she logged again all her earnings had went back to zero. This really surprises me..Will not the admin be ready for all these hackers?
