Email scam

    I've received email via the system that contains incorrect grammar suggestions, asking to  contact sender at another email addy ASAP. It is an attempt to gain email addresses and I  advise others not to reply if they receive them.

    Best regards!

    From which system do you get it?
    Is it from hubpages or google?

    It was from the Hubpages email system.

      I assume you mean through the "Contact this user" form.  HubPages is, of course, not sending out spammy or phishing emails ourselves.

        Exactly, yes. Thanks for clarifying.

    If some reader sends some mail to an author via hubpages it is not spam. it is possible that reader had done some spelling mistakes. Spelling mistake does not mean spam at all.

      They emailed ME that I MUST put a very clearly grammatical-incorrect phrase INTO one of my hubs and demanded that I email them back. They were trying to get my email address.

        Yeah, it's not a very nice thing to do.

    Wait. If they emailed you, don't they have your email address? o_O

    Nevermind, I just checked the Contact thing. It doesn't give you the user's email. I thought it did. o.O That's crazy.
