    Spammer/Scammer Alert

    Discussion in 'Announcements' started by Cogito, Jul 21, 2011.

    Be aware that a spammer is sending email to members with public email contact information.

    If you receive an email from [NOPARSE]sarah@article-writing-services.org[/NOPARSE], we recommend you delete it and block the sender. A web search reveals this account is a known scammer.

    There is no way to track down whether this is from a member. It need not be, because this information is, for the most part, available to anonymous visitors.

    A huge "Thank you!" to the member who alerted me of this spammer's activities.

    Thanks for the warning, Cog!

    I got a spam email last week, but it had nothing to do with the one you're mentioning. The one I got was from someone who lived in another country, had $1,000,000,000 in a bank, but was going to die in a few months and wanted all my bank info so she could direct-deposit in my account because God was telling her to give the money to a random email address that happened to be mine. Yeah frickin' right. I called B.S. on that one.

    Watch out, people. ;)

    Wuuuush! Anti-progress workers at it again? Nah, they won't succeed.

    Thanks, Mallory and Cogi for the update.
