Alert: fake fanfiction sites!

This was posted on a fanfiction anti-plagiarism site on Facebook. Please share with your fanfiction friends. Be warned, these sites are full of malware and viruses, but it's very important that we report this!
"NOT A PROMPT BUT REALLY IMPORTANT!!! I checked these sites and they have exact copies of my works under my pen name. This notice came up on my Tumblr so I am sharing it here.
All Fanfiction.net Stories Have Been Stolen
Dear fanfiction writers,
Please be aware that there are fake websites which have mirrored literally ALL FANFICS from Fanfiction.net. As far as I can tell, they are near-perfect mirrors, updating in real-time to FFN’s servers.
All of your stories, your profile, everything has been stolen and copied onto the following websites:
http://www.thebuystock.org/
http://www.talkfictions.com/
http://fictionavenue.org/
http://thanfiction.org/
http://hmofiction.org/
They are making profit off your stories with advertisements. This is called spamdexing. Please report them. Theft of this hefty magnitude, literally millions of stories, should not go unpunished.
Also, do not attempt to log in to any site that looks like Fanfiction.net but is not. In theory, they could steal your email and password!
HOW TO REPORT
Go here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/spamreportform?hl=en
Put in the name of the website (one report each).
Write in additional details: This is a spamdexing mirror site to https://www.fanfiction.net/ and has stolen my profiles and intellectual property.
Click “I am not a robot” and then “Report webspam”
Report more by clicking the link on: Go back to the webspam report form.
Writers and fanfic readers should report these websites that profit off our hard work. Stop plagiarism and art theft!"

After five years of weekly one shot challenges, I’ve decided it’s time for me to hang up my challenge hat. I have thoroughly enjoyed posting these challenges every week, and have especially loved seeing your stories inspired by the challenges.

I hope these continue to inspire you. If anyone wishes to take the baton and post new challenges, please feel free to share them here. It has been an honor and a privilege, my fanfiction friends.
