Well I hate to be THAT guy, but that is EXACTLY what they are, random popups that even legit accounts are getting hit with, its the new captcha more or less. Captchas happened to legit and non legit accounts and everyone freaked out, but it didnt mean your account was banned, some did sure, but in this instance, its a scare tactic to try to stop 3rd party apps before trading comes along. So PLEASE stop fearing nothing, and please stop fueling fear. Its a scare tactic and is ignorable unless you do get banned. This is NOT exclusive to PF as the OP claims, and has hit many people legit and non legit alike. As for the silly one who posted something I and Hatching put up ages ago, that was for something else and NOT relevant to this at all. Continued attempts at fearmongering of that nature will result in your removal from this community.
