i dont't get like this ,
but this mail you get,
when that person has visited your profile & clicked on contact person.
i get an spam mail from nationwide bank ,
that i am the monthly winner of google yahoo lotto prize ,
i have won 20000000 british pounds.
Trekkiemelissa..I just came across an identical mail posted at the forum about 80mins back .Its here..from one Mirian123
I get these sorts of emails about once or twice a week, always a random hubber with no published hubs or display pic.
I wonder what they are trying to achieve, or is purely to find out our emails once we reply so they can add us to some ad network mailing list
My biggest won was confirmed by FBI - I was entitled to being paid $60,000,000,000 IN CASH!
As to email spam, it comes in from day to day. Can't figure out the purpose of sending it because most emails are incomprehensible.
From the last two weeks, I'm getting such type of mails. The mails request me to provide my details, visit to their websites (not profile) and .....
But I ignore those mails and I don't have any headache who they are or not...
Every single day!!!!
I must get at least two a day -on a slow, lazy day-
The most outrageous were from a woman asking me for photos to know me better, she chased me for weeks trying to get a response to her advances.
I just ignore them all. If you answer they will get your email address so better just ignore them if you are not interested in their proposals. Never give any personal details including telephone number, city where you are, credit card numbers, bank names or any information about family members.
I have gotten that exact same one and another asking me to meet them at some dating site, it was really weird. I juts ignore them. Princessa is right, if you contact them at all, even to ask them to stop, they will then have your email address and they will harass you more then before.
Didn't get that. Usually my spam goes something like this:
"hey! did you always want a bigger penis??" - errr no fanks
"are you sure?" - absolutely
"well before you say no - why not think about that extra length?" - seriously, NO
"we can rebuild you. Bigger, longer, more pleasurable then before" - look, I'm a woman ok? I don't have anything to rebuild in the first place
"ahhh - we can fix that, just click the link" - oh Gods
Three guesses who's getting new genitalia in a few weeks
Yeah, I've gotten several different variations of the one Trekkiemelissa got, not frogdropping's.
I reported it as spam. Surprising enough, I don't get much spam between all the sites I write on. I know not to respond hehe. If I don't want someone to have my email address, I just respond with my no reply type of email.
I think our emails get harvested n that's why we get spam emails you're not alone
I believe that they will only get your email address if you reply to their email.
If the email you recieved comes through your hubpage email account, the spammer does not get your address.
Also if the email comes through Hubpages, scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see a "This message is Spam" button, click on that button and as they say "The spammer is toast"
Just report it as spam. HP will take care of it. How many crackheads from Boswana can there be?
Spam is best in a can, put in a frying pan.
I already reported it. I just wanted to see if anyone else was getting these things. Its interesting to see what kind of spam we get out of these guys. If its not one thing, its another thing.
I'm not interesting enough to spammers yet to get love mail from them. I'm okay with that, though.
Look at the email message above which has been sent through hubpages. This person may be out to harvest my email address. But he is telling me that I either provide it to him or he is going ahead duplicating my articles in his website.
How would you handle such a situation?
Drats! I got one yesterday and forgot to hit the spam button before I deleted it. Oops.
I've had spam that I suspect originated from Twitter. Not from HP. HP seems to be a safe environment. I've reviewed who is following me on all sites even though they are useful platforms that agents etc like to see being used.

Is anyone else getting spam messages on their hubs?In the past couple of hours, I received three comments on 3 random hubs of mine. The comments have nothing to do with my hubs. I looked up the ip addresses. Two were from the Netherlands. One was from Qatar.

Has anyone else been REJECTED by Ebay?So, I applied to be an Ebay affiliate 4 weeks ago when I signed up at hubpages and I just received a rather generic email two days ago stating that my application could not be accepted at this time. Of course there was no explanation and my attempts to...

Most of these 'communications' are unsolicited-like hair restoration ads!-though they claim I did subscribe. I've spent most of the day unsubscribing from all of them, and I have 3,604 to go. Needless to say, I'm exhausted and somewhat p*ssed. No time for writing!I understand...

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 email accounts. Just a thought . Also, it would be great if email...
