I just got a message on Cloud Research that I have to verify my account or possibly have account suspended due to suspicious activity. Included in the verification process was a survey that asked a few questions including password for the account and to list all the other platforms I work on.

The only suspicious activity I am aware of is I've been doing a lot more surveys on there lately - but only because they made them available to me, LOL

Edit: Someone on Turkerview just posted link to Reddit post that includes:

Cloud Research quickly messaged me back and said that the email is not from them and they have blocked that researcher.

Time to change my password!!!!

I get soooo many emails (and texts lately) telling me there is a problem with my accounts (various ones) I make it a practice to go directly to the account mentioned and checking for any messages re problems or seeing if I can sign in. So far, 100% of the time the messages have been fake!

This message I got was an alert for "conversations" within Cloud Research while I was logged in. Unfortunately, I put my suspicions aside because of that. Certainly won't happen again!
