Hi.

I recived spam to one of my mailadress that i only got registered at Saabcentral. Maybe your userdatabase got stolen? The mail was sent from [email protected] anyone else got spam from this sender?

Mail sended inserted below.

Dear Friend,

NOTE: This transaction involves meeting, you should be able to
travel or send a representative to meet the security company.

My Name is Sergeant Raymond Chandler, currently on military
deployment here in Afghanistan, I contacted you to see how best
we can assist each other. There is an important business
discussion i wish to share with you which I believe will interest
you.

I would want to move an important consignment to you for
investment on properties or real estate as you may choose and i
need your assistance as a partner to receive this and also invest
it for me.

I will give you details about this transaction as soon as you
respond and declare your interest so effectively to work with me.

Lets get this done urgently and finalize this transaction for
partnership investment agreement. In your reply tell me more
about yourself and include your telephone number for easy
communication
Best Regards,
Sgt.Raymond Chandler

More likely your email provider got hacked. I had a yahoo email that I rarely used get hijacked to send out spam once. It had a pretty complex password too. They hacked yahoo to get the emails and passwords.

Hi,

I assure you that your account on here is protected and no one has made a copy of the database. Like mentioned above, there are more than one way to get a email address and sometimes bots crawl around in the dark shooting off emails hopefully.

I'm also receiving spam. Pandora..unsubscribe not possible.

I only use [email protected] for this site. Never used anywhere else!
That's why I use the option catch-all in combination with web-registrations. In this way, SPAM can be traced back.

Please take a look at your security. My own domain nor mail provider is hacked.

Can you go there and check your email settings. See if you agreed to received emails from others?

so does it say that you allow other users to send you emails? if that setting was not turned off, then you'll receive emails from others.

What I mean is that those SPAM messages are directly send to [email protected]

With this option enabled, allow other users to send you email, they can use a email field on saabcentral.

Can you explain where other users can find my email adres [email protected] when this option is enabled? I'm familiar with the send mail to users form on saabcentral but the email adres is hidden so far as i know.
