No one should not reply or click on any links in such email address as it is Fake and is being send to most publishers and I received this fake mail in the email address i gave in my profile page in hubpages.
Hubpages should Prevent spam email collecting software bots from accessing Hubpages.
HubPages has nothing to do with preventing spam email sent to your email address. You have your email address printed out on the page with a link, that is just asking for spammers to spam you.
You have the contact feature enabled. If you don't want your email to be accessible via HubPages, you should turn that feature off. That's how they get it.
They also have an email address on their profile page and perhaps on other page that display adsense
email scraping bots are free and easy to run, then they just throw tons of crap at the wall and hope it sticks
whenever you post an email online, just make your life easier and write it as
youraddress (at) wherever (dot) com or something similar that a human understands but a bot does not
the enabled contact feature on hubpage is far less likely to be scraped as it is a remailer - thats why the email comes from hubs when you receive it
I honestly wouldn't answer it anyway it certainly would not make any sense.
Thanks too. It's always worrisome when these things show up claiming to be from adsense.
Thanks for the heads up on this one, what is it that they gain? Just an email address? Not access to adsense accounts?
That email has given a shock for everyone and thousands of people have already received such emails. I would bet 75 % of people will click on the link and download it without thinking anything.
