I don't have any info from my profile, yet I got the following message to my personal email:

"The following message was sent to you by P-1878657494 while viewing
your Member Profile:

hi there.

i was browsin' through this site, and I came across your place. You seem to be a reasonably cool person, but I'm somewhat inexperienced at how things work here, and dont know my way around here.
Don't they have some sort of chatting program here?? Well, I don't like writing msgs to ppl, and potentially not receiving a responce. Anyways, if you feel like chatting with me, u could check me
over at dating-plaza.org?id=3591 , my name there is fun_miss.

So, ya, maybe I'll see you. I'm always looking to find more people.

I thought that my personal email was secure unless I choose to share it. So why was this person able to get it?

Thanks Melissa,


Even though you don't have the box checked to send email through you're profile, that's exactly what happened.

I got a similar e-mail, it was almost identical in fact. Here it is:

helo.

i was browsing thru the site, & i noticed ur profile. You seem to be a reasonably interesting person, but I'm quite new here, & dont know where to go on this site. Can't they have a chat thing
here?? Well, I don't like writing to ppl, & sometimes not receiving anything back. Anyways, if u feel like talkin' with me, u could find me over at dating-bucket.org?id=3591 , my name there is
funhotty.

So, ya, hope to chat with you. I'm always lookin' to meet more people.
(with holding name)

I will forward this e-mail to you. It looks like someone might be spamming people.

Sorry, I edited this so I could leave out the name and just forward it to you.
