Hi, I just recieved this email from someone called ClickrNet,
'You have been place on our hubpage for a contest we're running for the month of April. The winner will recieve a prize. All contestants will need a free Paypal account to take advantage of the prizes. The winner with the most "votes" will be declared the "winner." With that being said, start tell your friends to visit CLICKRNET and start voting on your behalf. All votes will need to be entered through the "comment" area. Good luck and thanks to excepting this message. We hope everyone will have fun with this game. ll prizes are provided by ClickrNet.'
notice the poor spelling, this is the link to there hubpage below, am I smelling a big fat rat? or is it just me being very suspicious? Seems a bit strange to me! Someone after my paypal account or something?!!!
Hiya, yes but there was nothing there that convinced me, I also looked it up on google and there is nothing there at all! Umm!
I only asked because of the different pictures it has of each Hubber. The large size picture of Relache, made me question, whether or not, you visited the hub she wrote.
I didn't bother to check out things on the Internet. However, it is certainly going to be interesting to see the response she gets from the hubbers, whose pictures on her hub?
I just visited the Hub and was struck by a large photo of Relache. All very weird.
I'm pretty sure this is attempted fraud. Have you reported this?
Hi, I just went back to take another look, yep, definitely dodgy! I will give Hubpages a quick email, just to let them know I think, everyone agree?
Hey Nell, since you were the one who received the email. I would suggest you FLAG both the profile and the hub, and in the description box, explain why you flagged it.
Don't waste your time with sending an email to Staff.
You're right, of course. But it might be worth sending a copy of the email Nell received to the team.
Why bother, when you can enter it in the description box when flagging.
No I didn't because I wasn't sure whether to or not, but I will do, thanks
I think sending the email to HP staff is a great idea because it shows this "hubber" has gone above and beyond to spam. I flagged the hub myself too.
Well I'm a bit disappointed. First the HP ads rejection, now this. I'm not even worth scamming.
Hey Mark, what are you talking about the HP Ad Program rejection?
It is now open to ALL Members.
Thanks Cagsil - I had just noticed! But I wasn't in the FIRST wave. Put me right off my work. Didn't publish a hub for twenty minutes after I found out.

So I've been a Hubpage and Squidoo writer for the past 5 years. Recently, my 185 Squidoo hubs were transferred over to Hubpages and to start earning money, I applied for the Google adsense program about 2 weeks ago. It appears that my account was approved for a couple days and then I...

Does anyone really make money on HubPages?I have worked and worked, all original content, all by myself, and I have not earned a dime. I get visitors. The second issue...I can't connect my hubpages to my paypal account.
