I couldn't be Mick F because they wouldn't allow it - can't remember why.
Any road up, I've been a member for a while now usually posting on the 705 message board. Trouble is, for months and months and months, I've been having problems logging on because someone else is attempting to log on in my name.
I received an email the other day:
Someone has tried to log into your account on Garmin Forums with an incorrect password at least 5 times. This person has been prevented from attempting to login to your account for the next 15 minutes.
The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 126.96.36.199
All the best,
I've often had problems logging on, in fact it gets terribly annoying that I get a message that I'm locked out. Consequently, I tend not to be on the forum as much as I would otherwise be.
It would appear that the 188.8.131.52 IP address is in the USA.
I'm in UK with the IP address of 184.108.40.206, though it does vary a bit as I open and close my broadband connection.
I changed my password some time back to stop anyone even guessing it, but someone continually tries.
Any ideas to stop this?
They came back to me:
Thank you for contacting Garmin Europe.
I am happy to help.I am sorry to hear that someone has been trying to
access your account and i can only advise that you change your username.
This will prevent anyone from being able to log in and/or guess what the
username is for your account. Can you confirm whether you would like me
to do this, and if so, please let me know what you would like the
username to be changed to?
If there is anything else I can help you with then please let me know.
Alternatively you can search for a solution here: http://www.garmin.co.uk/support
What shall I do?
Change my name, or just live with it?
Has someone got it in for me?
