Strange Emails - Phishing/Fraud?
« on: October 23, 2016, 08:41:09 AM »
Its good to see a few familiar faces still around the camp after being away for sooooo long. Like everybody else here I've been managing to keep myself busy. However, the main reason I'm back right now is to ask if anybody else here has been getting strange emails from someone who says they are a member called - "NormanDip"?

I have received several now all saying the same thing - "You have received a new private message from "NormanDip" to your account on "Harmonica Forum" with the following subject:
Расспродажа брендовой парфюмерии - You can view your new message by clicking on the following link":

http://harmonicaforum.com/ucp.php?i=pm&mode=view&p=2749


I have no idea what this is all about. Can anybody shed any light on it?

Spam. Russian spam and scam accounts pop up here all the time.

Thanks guys. That was my suspicion except this is not the first time this particular person(s) has sent this request to me. Obviously a persistent little bugger.

I was mainly interested to hear if anybody else had received this or a similar email from this person? I would hate to have to close my membership with HB because of one idiot.

HarmonicaForum.com  is a completely different site from this site.  We are HarmonicaBoogie.com .

There is no NormanDip registered as a user here.      All we have is SteamRollin Stan, and that is bad enough.   Ha ha, just kidding about Stan.
