Security is a permanent challenge on the internet: Advance-fee scam, false identity, company identity theft, casting scams etc. Safety is and always has been our priority, notably with the systems already in place such as: reporting forms, email alerts and blacklisting.
But we can do better, and we have done!
From now on whenever you receive a message you will also receive a « Find out more about the sender » link. This will serve to centralise as much information as possible: « Is the email address associated with a Artfolio portfolio? », « Ask Google », « Geolocation of the IP address », « Whois » for email addresses with a domain name, etc.
And because unity is strength, Arfolio members have the possibility of sharing their opinions of those from whom they receive emails. So, at any time, you can check the opinions of other members and submit your own.
If you contact members of Arfolio and you have a Arfolio portfolio, we recommend that you use the email associated with your portfolio for the contact forms (click here to find out the email associated with your portfolio). That way those who receive your messages will have the address of your portfolio (« The email address is associated with [portfolio address] ») which offers a guarantee that you are in fact the publisher of that portfolio.
