WARNING TO VOLUNTEERS
PLEASE BE AWARE, there is the distinct possibility that you may search a site that will put you at the risk to get viruses, Trojans or Spy/Malware!! Please keep your anti-virus signatures up to date and do frequent scans. Having more than one AV and/or Trojan programs is better. There is NO perfect protection, but we recommend (we get nothing from this) that you download the free version of McAfee SiteAdvisor. [link] resides on your toolbar and warns of problem sites. You STILL must use common sense, though! If you wish to not do searches for RATF because of this we will understand. While searching two nights ago, 1arcticfox had a malware/Trojan deposited on her computer called Error Safe. It masquerades as a Microsoft notice box, asking you to download Error Safe to check for errors in your registry. She did NOT download this, but still was infected and is still dealing with that even though she runs 3 Anti-virus programs and has 2 firewalls! More information on this will be available soon.

PIMPMYPROFILE INVESTIGATION--->[link]We are working as hard and as fast as possible to deal with all the information coming in.
We are swamped and apologize - respond times to comments/questions may be slow.
We are not perfect – note us if there is an oversight…it is not intentional.
Comments left on the RATF site by others - are THEIR opinions – not necessarily ours.
We need volunteers who will uphold the volunteer code of ethics.
We WILL NOT tolerate unprofessional conduct or illegal or unorthodox methods… period.
This is not a vigilante task force.
We simply want to help people with their art theft and copyright issues.
We are volunteers and do not deserve abuse, we are merely assisting you to resolve your rip issues!
