I am getting "love letter" from women around the world. Courtesy HubPages. I am not blaming HubPages, but these spammers seem to be getting my email id from HubPages.
Any other Hubber affected? how do we stop it? Any ideas?
hmm yea i have been getting this one letter from an African American. How do you know where the spam email comes from? Its so annoying, an i have been getting A LOT of it lately...
Unless you post your email address out in the open on HubPages, nobody can get your email address from this website. You can tell if an email is coming through the email contact form by seeing if it says "via HubPages" after their name in the "from" box. Otherwise, they have nothing to do with our site.
(Note: You can report spam that comes through the email contact form by hitting the "spam" link at the bottom of those emails.)
It is up to you to keep your computer safe, and people do hack in its not Hub Pages its all ov er the Net.
Maddie is correct, I am having problems at the moment, with a particularly irritating one. I have reported the prob. and made sure it doesn't happen again, by upping security.
Maddie, I agree "they have nothing to do with hubpage site.", but they always introduce themselves by saying they found out about me from HubPages profile.
No big deal I block them as spam. Thank you all for your input.
Ah crap Ive been busted lol
Cant say I have had the pleasure yet and hopefully never do
I haven't had too much of a problem but I also use GMail which has a great spam filter. Becareful if someone from Nigeria wants to give you money :-P
You do have your e-mail address on your profile.... That could definitely be why. Maybe you could say contact me through the contact form on the right...that way everything goes through HubPages and your e-mail is not exposed.
The minute you paste your e-mail address (even with no link as you have it), e-mail address crawlers will find it, harvest it and it will be sold in bulk spam lists.
That's why a lot of people say myemail (at)email.com or something like to throw off e-mail harvesters.

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...

How can someone use my email address to send me or others junk/spam emails?A few months ago, I had a friend tell me that she was constantly receiving junk emails with my address as the sender. I figured that those spammers were using my email as their name to get people to open their emails....

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...

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 out as a Dating Service or is this a new wave Scam about to hit HubPages.

I've gotten an increase in emails like everyone else. Some of them are clearly legitimate, others, not so much. It's impossible to know if there is one person spamming me repeatedly, or if the spam fairy just happened to be more busy this month than others. Can the raw source be included in the...
