Also, just as a heads up, we are suggesting that members do not go to the fake site at all because there is always the possibility that the thief is using that site for other detrimental purposes (spreading trojan horses, rootkits, viruses, etc).

Sounds good, thanks for clearing that up.

Any idea whose behind the fake site and why him/her is doing that?

Just to play it safe its probably a good idea to change your password if you havn't already, that is if its the same one you used on the fake site. :ninja

I signed up for the other site not knowing about the hack, and was warned by PM almost instantly that it was fake. The people who are still frequenting that forum to warn others are doing a fantastic service. :thumbsup

Hey guys, just curiouse whats the correct url??
Movie Props, Costumes and Scale Models | the RPF
this is the site i use and am currently on
Well in case you are in doubt, i think dung beetle had posted a list of other blogs and community sites that all show and state that thereplicapropforum is the legit site, There is also a link to the legal document that states much the same as well in the next steps thread over in the off topic area.

Previously you can see where therpf user was banned on the previous site, as were almost ALL of the moderator accounts when the hacker decided to setup shop.

Finally the hacker that stole the original site, has now put up a fake FBI takedown notice that also attempts to run malicious code on your computer as well.
