    I have received a mail from fellow Hubber(?) i don't think so... I searched the name rofina but nobody is there in Hubpages and I searched the name "rofina tummy" in Google and I got one link which goes like this..

    This is an internet scam! Do NOT send these scammers money for any reason.

    I've recently had several spam emails "via HubPages".  Mostly Gambians wanting a friendship or several thousand dollars.  I've been here nearly 18 months and this is a recent development - no idea why.

    I heard hackers and crackers were going to attack vulnerable blogs and other websites with these kind of posts to send nasty viruses. neutral We will have to just be careful.

      The only thing that can be sent via the HubPages contact link is plain text messages.  So, the only way you put yourself at any risk is by clicking on a link in the email, or by responding to it (since that will reveal your email address to the original sender).

      We don't filter the messages that are sent, so they should be approached with the same caution that you would any "anonymous" email.

      Of course, if you'd prefer not to be contacted at all simply uncheck the "allow other users to contact you?" checkbox here, and then you'll have nothing to worry about at all.

    Yes I've had a couple too from 'hubbers' with no hubs who seemed to be looking for romance!
    I thought it was just down to my good looks!
