We have become aware of both a fake text message impersonating DoneDeal and a fake email impersonating DoneDeal that are being sent out in an attempt to gather login details.
THAT MESSAGE WAS NOT SENT BY DONEDEAL.
Once you entered your login details through that fake link in the text, you had unfortunately given them your DoneDeal username and password. Since then your ads have been tampered with/changed. For this reason, to keep your ads safe, we have temporarily disabled your DoneDeal account.
Important: We recommend that you follow our as set out below to make sure your DoneDeal account and your email account are safe.
