    Ancestry.com I believe they are sending out fraudulant emails in order to induce us to rejoin

    i recently got a strange email from a "fellow" member saying he was related to some of my relatives and he could help me fill out my tree.  I had dropped my membership 4 months ago.  Anyway I joined again so I could contact this person. Turns out he had not been on the site for 6 months and the relatives he claimed were mine were the same name but different people.  I also wrote to the email address he left but got no answer.  I think ancestry is hiring people to write fraudulent emails to get us to rejoin to connect with those people.  Have you heard of this from others? how can I find others

    Your comment is the first I've heard of this.  I don't have any information or suggestions. I also receive strange emails of various types--Nigerian scams, etc. I just delete them.
