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 would reply back and ask them if they were asking about your hub. Of course unless you just would like to wait and see if they email you again.
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.
I have no idea if it is someone from here...all it says is the name "ada".
Oh, I usually look and see if I can find them on hubpages. If its a hubber, I usually email back.
Ok but how can I find out if this person is a hubber?
I searched, I didnt see any names that came up. Must be an outsider waiting to spam ya to death....lol
Ok I am going to click the link in the email to report it as spam. Thanks for your help annvans!
Ok well I'll just delete the email and not reply back.
I'm just going to not reply and delete the email.
They may have seen your google hub and was asking about another google program that they think may be scam.
well call me a beyotch but i don't reply to messages like that.
huh....well I think that is all up to you about replying or not, chica. Sounds kinda fishy to me
That is funny cause I was just saying on another thread about having a few strange emails.
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.
The search bar in the top right, ya search and select "more" and you can select hubbers.
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.
It did say email was unverified so that means it was an outsider?
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 out as a Dating Service or is this a new wave Scam about to hit HubPages.

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 don't answer and it still is blocked from being monetized. This is a short story...

So I heard recently that there is a hubpages newsletter and I was wondering how to sign up for it? Does anybody know?

I have received two unsolicited emails now from a hubber requesting me to send him my email address. I find it a bit creepy. I just deleted the first one. Should I ignore it or report it? I have had legitimate email contact from other which I have welcomed and responded to.

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...

I received a note from an editor on my last Hub, which I complied with to the best of my ability. However, when I tried to respond to the email, my message bounced back. This always happens. I always add the Team email address when responding anyway, but it would be nice to feel I can communicate...
