We have been alerted to a potential security issue that has occurred in the last few days that could affect our site.

We have increased our site security accordingly. We have also noted an increase in false account sign-ups in the last few days. As a result of this, we are security screening ALL new sign-ups.

If you are a new member to the site, you are asked to urgently to edit your profile with your location if you have not already done so.

Failure to carry out this request could result in your account being frozen, especially if you are a zero poster.

You have been warned.....

Additional Note.
New registering members are now required to enter their Location during the registration process. Please make sure you enter your real location because checks are being made and any bogus location information will mean your account will not be activated.

Location information is used on Amibay to aid members with the purchasing of listed items. Knowing the location of a seller, and their item being sold helps a buyer work out potential shipping costs. It is therefore an essential piece of information to have included for all members.

Just to make this crystal clear, so that there is no mis-understanding...

The format we request for your location is Town or City, followed by Country.. e.g.

Manchester, UK
Ioannina, Greece
Ottawa, Canada
Perth, Australia

You get the idea....as you may realise, more than one country can have the same place names, so this information prevents confusion.
