I received an email via someone on Hubpages and was wondering if this is a spammer. Here is what the email said:
I saw your comment about the google pay. please i wan to know how it works and if you could be of help to me, i am a female in college studying nursing, and i realy have high fees to pay for, i have been looking online for a way out until i finally saw this today. please do reply."
Now I have a hub about Google product kit scam but nothing about Google pays. What is your thoughts on this? Should I reply back?
I think I'm just going to wait because I received a email something like this before and replied back to the person and they never sent me an email back and also I noticed I started getting quite a few spam emails after that.
OMG that has happened to me too. I thought it was strange the sudden influx of spam. I guess I will have to go more careful in future about who I reply to. I really don't get how much they must earn for passing on our details. I had to shut my Tiscali down because the spam was incredible. It's probably still there with 20 trillion emails in it.
I've received several similar e.mails (not regularly, but every so often). I don't reply to them because I do think there's something "off". I just figure, why would anyone need to specifically contact any Hubber (and the e.mails are always in broken English) when HubPages tells people what the situation is, and the forum is loaded with information.
If you're e.mailed through your HubPages profile the e.mail message will say "unverified" (a stranger) or else the Hubber's name. If the e.mail came from "outside", it would really make you wonder why a Hubber would not contact you through your profile.
I looked at your hub and I think that when they seen that you made a hub about google products and scams, that they were asking you about a google pay product or something is all. I would hate for you to report some poor curious person.
What happens when you mark it as spam. I have loads and just of late magazine susciptions for hairdressing no less. Now the only people I speak to on this acount is hubers. So am I to think that some hubers use hubpages as a way of collecting emails?
Iv'e been receiving more and more emails like the one below from new Hubbers. (names changed to protect the innocent, the Hubber was not actually called xxxxxxxxxxxxx. Not a bad idea though) Is Hubpages branching...
I have a hub that is doing well (at least for me, as a beginner), but is not monetized because it has one swear word in it. I have written the team twice asking them if they would look at it and remove the filter. They...
Is there a possibility we could have a new feature that would only allow Hubpage members with profiles to send emails? I think this might cut down on the amount of spam we are currently receiving from unverified...
