In our case we can see that thousands of computers from all of the world are trying to log into our site over and over and over again with stolen usernames and passwords. They are hoping that wherever they stole the usernames and passwords from, the person used the same set on SR and they can then log into their SR account. If they manage to get in, the worst thing they can do is try to cash out to PayPal. But if they do, the user gets an email telling them about the cashout and we can stop it before anyone gets the money.

    So they are totally wasting their time on SR. We're small enough that we can keep track of our member cashouts really easily and not let anyone steal anything. It would be a lot worse for a big site that is used to getting a ton of traffic and cashouts and it would just blend in with their normal traffic.

    The down side is that they have so many computers trying to log into our site at once that it makes it slow for our REAL customers. So we have to try to keep finding ways to block them for hitting the site.
    I cashed out for PP last night, I did not get and e-mail from SR, is that correct?

    Everyone should be now. Maybe it's a spam block? Do you get your other emails from us?

    I do get the other e-mails from SR but my PP e-mail address is different from the SR and I checked that account. Just wanted to follow up. It was ME that cashed out
