    I must say I am a bit Shocked and very Ticked off. Yesterday I opened my mail to see what was up, as normal my SPAM Wiper kicked into action and killed just about all my SPAM and immediately sent it into my trash folder. But low and behold here pops up new mail from

    "HAIKO- Special Offers"

    Granted I immediately open it without thinking. DAMN SPAM! So enraged, at first I completely blocked the server, then looked at where it came from. mail02-special-offers.mx07.com

    Now I have to think what the heck?
    Did this forum sell my email address?
    Did this forum place my email address on a mailing list?
    DANG did someone steal HAIKOS mailing list and he never told anyone?

    As I am seriously upset by this situation I am hoping to obtain some answers. And curious to know if anyone else has received the same SPAM?

    Crazy to think that. Thats how spammers work, some spammers could have SandraR Special Offers.

    Do you really think that this forum would be a successful and popular as it is if Haiko was to sell our e-mail addresses?

    That would be another forum that sells your info, not this one.

    Haiko,

    The reason I am so upset is becuase I do trust you and the forum.

    So people do not read more into what I wrote than what I wrote! I am asking questions, do not place me on a pole for burning. Geeezeeeee


    Unfortunately I trashed the email before I could rationally think about it. Sorry I was just so pissed, actually that’s why I waited a day to write here so I could calm down!

    If I get another I will immedietly post it so you can see.

    I often get emails that are from the same names as people I know. So does someone look in my email and see who I know, or just use common names that happen to be close? Well either way I can still tell they are spam without opening them, they are wasting their time.
