For some reason, gaia keeps on saying I can't send a rp profile to someone because it seems that their phishing for my password and private info?

What to do?
Not sure I understand. Are you saying that the site itself gives out a warning when you try to send a profile? Is this by PM?

Yeah, that's exactly what it does.
It doesn't let me send the pm when I try, a red box pops up on top, and warns me about scams...

Okay. That does seem familiar now. It's probably how you formatted your PM where it appeared you are giving your password and name. There might be some information there that appeared to trigger the alarm. Is there another way to send the profile? Through a thread?

Thanks ^_^

I see part of the problem now, cause there was a passcode to submit my profile, and I had to put my username on the profile.

I'll phrase it differently next.

Though, since it happened, will the person I tried sending the pm to get banned? I hope not!

Did you report the person? Probably not, if you didn't.
Maybe you can speak to that person regarding that passcode business?
