Some Geocaching.com members are receiving emails from someone trying to warn new cachers away. Please don't be alarmed if you receive one of these. It's just someone being a jerk. Groundspeak has been notified and (I hope) is looking into the situation.

For those who haven't yet received it, I will add the text of the message, plus the link to the forum thread. Again, don't take anything in their email too seriously, and don't get alarmed. That's what they're trying to do. Any new cachers who are concerned about this, feel free to post any questions here, and the more experienced cachers can assuage your fears.

You should be aware that geocaches are often located on private and public property without proper permission.

Groundspeak has no way of verifying that proper permission has been obtained. Instead they rely on "adequate"permission asserted by the hider of the cache.

There have been a number of instances where geocachers have been detained by law enforcement.

Recently there have been several of instances where property owners have come to the forums to alert geocachers to caches placed on their property without their permission.

Before you continue in this hobby you should question the legalities of this activity.
