Exclamation Account Locked Out

I keep getting this email. I am not the one attempting to log into my account. I have no issues when logging into my account. Are other members experiencing this?

Dear Gary,

The person trying to log into your account had the following IP address: 172.69.62.4

Seems like someone is trying to gain entry to your account.....

Maybe a staff member will see if that IP belongs to anyone here or not....... (Hopefully its a mistake)

Sorry, I couldn't resist that!

Anyways, I haven't noticed any reports on the forum recently on this subject. Possibly someone has chosen your account to try to hack as it looks dead (only used once previously in June 2001?) to all intents and purposes.

Yes. I'm here. I just thought I'd post something about this issue. The IP address could be spoofed. Thank you for your help.
