    Just wondering if anyone else was contacted via their e-mail by new hubbers who have not published anything.  I was contacted by a "hubber" who joined ten days ago and had nothing on his profile or any hubs.  Stated he just wanted to get to know me better..  I am leary of anyone who doesn't participate in the community at ALL so I prob won't answer.  Anyone else have this happen? What did you do?

      I have had this happen occasionally I just block it and move on. I enjoy HP to much to let the small things get me down.

      I had a hubber named "Misha" contact me and ask me what I was wearing, but that person has been around for a while, so I'm not sure if that's the same thing.

    LOL And you have to ask? lol


    Umm well, the answer is easy - click the small "spam" or "abuse" link at the bottom of email, and move on.

    It's happened to me a few times too.  Like Ohma said, I just move on and enjoy the rest of Hubpages.

    I guess I could report them, but they really haven't done anything .. even though I think they ARE up to something big_smile

      Yes, Ms Chievous they are up to something. They want you to email them back, so they can have your primary email account address. They know HubPages is only an email forwarding system.

      You only need to do nothing. Because, replying gives them what they want. wink big_smile

        That's a lie to protect you... and I'm not going to do it anymore.

        You said I looked fat in my makeshift tin foil corsette and shiny-pants.  I'm not forgiving you for that.  I spent eleven minutes making that lingerie for you, not to mention the environmental cost given that I didn't recycle it after you laughed at me and the amount of foil it takes to ... well, cover me.

            Laughter is medicine and stuff.

            You only have 19 hubs.  You should join my 30 minute challenge. U could use it.

              I can't write a hub in 30 minutes. I can cheat though, and use one of pre-written ones and post it under this account  instead of my sock puppet one. Will that count? wink

    Here's one I just received!

    "hello dear and respectable travelspresso so i have read ur profile now i want to propose for real and strong relations if u want to accept my friendship i hope that u will feel me a real sincere and honest person in ur life so come and share ur life with me i m here for u contact with me as soon as posible"

    It's from someone with "trust" in their name.  Naturally they have just joined Hubpages and have no hubs.

    I wonder what kind of "real and strong relations they propose?"   Just wondering..... smile smile smile
