SPAM email
« on: December 10, 2011, 07:36 AM »
Just a Heads Up -

I am guessing someone has gained access to the email addresses used on the board, either through being a member or hacking

The address I use on the forum is only used here, and the emails are purportedly from [email protected].,

Its scoring 12.6 as SPAM

Now all i have to do to claim the 12,500,000.....

May be worth looking at, as you are probably aware, getting blocked by servers can be a real PITA
Why an I Magician62? Because Magician1 thru 61 were gone. :)

Probably the same as this thread: https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=29211.0

The mail you received is'n just a PM notification?

hi magician62,

I'm fairly certain what you are seeing is not an email directly from a spammer to you, but a spammer who signed up to the forum and sent you a forum message -- delivered by our forum to you.

the difference is that no one got access to your email address -- they just sent you a message through our forum.

see this thread for others who got it too: https://www.donation...ex.php?topic=29211.0

but note that they can't send too many messages so the scale of the spamming was small.
