What is an Avatar?
An avatar is a small image (or a large icon) representing a user on a discussion
forum or a website. The user, instead of using his picture, may pick
a an object or a persona representing his character.
At iGolder, we encourage you to pick an avatar for
security purpose, to
protect your account against spoofing and phishing
attacks. The avatar you pick is private to you, and therefore acts
as a signature when iGolder sends email to communicate message with you.
Examples of Avatars
Your Avatar at iGolder
At iGolder, your avatar is private. We display your avatar at
the top of the each web page on our website, and also when we send
you an email message. If you ever receive an email "from" iGolder and
your avatar or favorite quote is missing, then you know this email is not
from iGolder - the email is likely to come from a scammer trying to steal
your account password and empty your iGolder account.
