You don't know who it's from either, do you?

I think since no one has come forward to claim ownership of the email from this site that it must be a con. How they got this site to connect to I don't know. I wouldn't click on any of the links just in case and mark it as SPAM

Creepy - huh!!?

Nope, that wasn't from me. What makes you say it was connected to this site? Did it say solidperfume.com or something?

Hi Jack biggrin.gif

The sender of the email said his name was JACK and that only a few of the site members were sent this "special" offer - at the bottom of the email was a note that the email would be in the "my messages" section of this site - IT WAS NOT

Also, there was an address string at the bottom of the email with solid perfume in it but it wasn't a link you had to copy it into your browser - I pegged it as spam and told everyone on the site about it because it seemed a little off to me. It did show me how far spammers will go to scam you. Nice to know we're being watched, huh blink.gif

I hope no one from here responded to it. I didn't save it or I'd send you a copy of it.

I hope you and Lisa are well and happy!

Katita

I have received another email regarding "Used Laptops" from someone named MERCY.JANITA- I haven't opened it - I sent it straight to SPAM

In the subject line it reads: (elsolidperfumecollectors) Trendy Used Laptops


I believe this is a FRAUD - if anyone gets this email - get rid of it!!!


Here's hoping everyone on this site stays virus free!

The other evening when I decided to look in on the site I noticed someone logging in under the name of Sex Porn Lesbian. I watched the person as I noticed they were registering but I did not see any post.

Wonder if Jack might want to watch this as I recall there was a problem in the past and I gathered it was to do with something like this ohmy.gif

Jack, if you would like to delete my post, please feel free to do so.

Hi Jack,
Yes, I got the message yesterday and just sent it to spam. The subject had solidperfume. And of course cheap laptop. I didn't notice the name of sender.
That Katita has an eagle eye.

Unfortunately it appears not! Lately there have been more and more hacking attempts on the site. Seeing that the site has some old scripts running on it, it becomes more and more vulnerable each day.

So far we have been able to keep them out for the most part. The name you saw browsing the site was someone attempting to get in, and the emails are likely another attempt.

We're still trying to decide what to do about it.
