Thread: I'm getting threatening SPAM emails from here.

    I'm getting threatening SPAM emails from here.

    I haven't been on this site in a long time, since my younger guy went back to his wife. N-Y-Way, for the last few days I've been getting emails from accounts here pretending to be admin.

    Here's the latest:

    Dear Baglady,

    You have received a new private message at Ageless Love - Your community for age gap relationship support! from TerryPhillipz, entitled "Spam detected.".

    I also received the same email from other spammer members whose accounts should be deleted - but I'm guessing they have more. They're probably associated with whoever hacked you.

    The other accounts are: GregBowen and ColinXHoward

    the site admins are likely aware of this.
    i think there's a post already about it in chit-chat under "Mod Note, Please Read."
    fyi- i got one also.

    I received a similar one from Greg Bowen. I didn't open the exe file they sent however.

    I did run a complete scan of my system though with my virus and spy-ware programs--zero "bad stuff" results.

    I just got the same PM from the same guy....I forwarded it to a mod.

    It's annoying stuff but as long as you don't click the links, you'll be fine.

    Yes, please just keep forwarding the PMs to the staff. Please copy me if you send it to Jody or Katrina since I am on more frequently than them and will likely see the PM first. Greg, Kendrick, & Phillip have all been banned thus far and I've alerted both Katrina & Jody.

    Thanks!

    Okay, the emails ARE real and are coming from the site. It notifies your email any time you get a PM.

    Its the actual PMs that are spam, and the system is just notifying you that you received the message. I hope that makes sense.

    We are banning them as soon as we know about them, and we will do our to stay on top of things.

    Thank you

    Thank you, I got one too - and was very curious since I'm on a Mac, and there is only one botnet out there that you can get, and only by using pirated software. Anyway, it was good encouragement for me to check my system out anyway, and I was able to get rid of some tracking cookies. Thanks to the Admin folks who are taking care of the issue.

    You can find the list by clicking the tiny white link that says "forum leaders" on the main forum page...

    but I can tell you Angel is the only moderator, and then there is Katrina and I, who are the administrators.

    Thats it! lol
