    Greetings Prisoners!

    For the past 24 hrs or so we have seen a marked increase in the distribution of phishing links. Phishing Links are links that in some way shape or form attempt to compromise your data, such as, your Minecraft Account Information.

    Some food for thought:
    If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! "Free Capes" are not free, they cost you your account!
    Your Mommy always told you not to click links in spam email and internet popups/ads, the same applies to games!

    Seriously speaking, NOBODY is going to give you a free cape. NOBODY is going to give you a cape for in game items.

    Don't click strange links
    Don't go to websites posted in books in game, or on signs, or on any platform for that matter.
    Don't ever EVER enter your account information into a website! Don't do it!

    Here's some tips to help you:

    Did you receive the link from someone online?
    Don't click it

    Did you find the link in a book or on a sign?
    Don't enter it into your browser

    Are you being asked to enter your login information into a website?
    Don't do it

    Did someone randomly pick you for a free prize/cape etc?
    Yeah, it's a trap!


    IF you have already entered your information into one of these websites I strongly urge you to:
    Change your login password for your minecraft account
    Consider changing the email affiliated to your minecraft account
    If that password was used ANYWHERE change it now!

    Be smart on the internet, not gullible.
    Finally a big thank you to @ypperin for this post from PvP <3​

    No! I don’t care, a chance for a cape is worth.
