Is this private message from a 'Mod' a scam?

Im new to the boards, but not to forums in general.

 

I received a private message from someone saything that they are a Moderator and want to help solve a problem of mine by following a link and entering my social media info. I think its bs. , not only b/c mods dont usually pv mssg you, but the link goes via bit.ly

 

Anyone heard of this before?

Hi @tkucey

 

The message is not a scam. If you ask an account-specific question, we will send you a private message, and we do use an identification link that we have shortened using Bitly.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions. Smiley

I've "used" it before. Don't let the "your social media info" thing bug you and put in your forum username (tkucey). The page was created for Facebook or Twitter requests, but it's also used for forum requests.
