Hi Mark,

When Fiona saw it, she just laughed and said would she like to meet here as well.....LOL.

I would have expected that I am not the only member to receive these emails. I have not removed them from my Blogs just yet, as I will wait and see what David and the team suggest.



ps

You are more than welcome to reply to her Mark.....LOL



Cheers

Hi Hairy

I have and will not rely to those emails, I am not that crazy.

You can do it for me and then let us all know the true identity of this fake person.

Stephen,

I haven't had one yet. What's going on? You must be a better looking bloke than me ;-) Perhaps they are covetting the Prado!

Do you have any videos posted on You-Tube (of your outback adventures I mean). Having a Youtube profile or Google gmail account invites a lot of this spamming.

Please post photo when it arrives lol.

Mick.

Hi Mick

The only ever images that I have ever posted on the Internet are the images that I either post when putting up forum posts and replies, or my Blogs.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I will not get any photos as I am not crazy enough to reply, anyway you know Fiona, she would kill me.....LOL

Hang on, her handle is Gift-sober. I don't much like the sound of that and neither would Little Wes. Best I go pour another scotch then ;-)

Hi Stephen,

You're not alone, we've had 4 or 5 too. Like you we will await advice from David. Can't imagine how many masterblogger Mick O has had!

Does anybody have some sunshine to send this way?

Cheers,

Val.

Hi Val

Thank goodness that I am not alone.

Mick said that he has not received any yet, but when he starts to get them, he might wonder what is going on and has he struck the Jack Pot....LOL

G'day Stephen

I've just this morning received the exact same email from the "Giftsober" girly thing?

Its quite amazing as to what crap and scams are instigated on the World Wide Web ~ but it is shameful how many so called level headed folk can and do fall into the trap of these scams, the Nigerian money scams and even the English lottery win scam emails come to mind.

I had a mental image of this "Miss Gift" up load in alarm portal in my brain when I saw the email ~ she looked very much like "BORAT, from Kazakstan.

Hopefully the ExplorOz system can filter these bogus emails out.

Hi Joe

It will be very interesting how many of us are attacked before they are blocked from the site. The problem then is they are likely to use another email a/c.


This will be a very good one for David to work out how to stop future intrusions from these low lives.

Hi Richard

You can have her.

Lets hope the EO team have blocked her, but the trouble is when they take away that email address, there will always be another 100 to take its place.

It will be a very sad day if we have to restrict any comments on Blogs to members only.

Just got hit with a Trojan called Web Ferret which I have removed using Malware Bytes. Hope this thread didn't have something to do with it. ;) LOL.

Hi Richard

Just scanned my computer and no threats found. Do you think you picked it up from the forum or other sites. It looks like David might have to do some extra work to make sure that this site is clean.

Have you sent David a message?
