    Was this in an email to your personal email account or was this pm'd to you in this forum? If it was a pm i'd report the private message. I don't like this so I'm reporting it. :shocked:

    Yeah I don't like that someone connected your name here with your email. Do you have your email posted anywhere in your profile or anywhere in the forum at all where they might have seen it?

    There are a lot of us in this forum who use gmail and our first name is part of our address. It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out. If the OP has a different email then the first name, then we have something to worry about. Other then that, I think it's fishing. To be clear what I mean by first name is as in my name is hookbill.

    I just looked at your settings and you don't have your email posted where the public can view it. You do have your skype mobil name in there but that is close to handle that you use over here.

    Don't know what to tell you. Keep your eyes opened. Change the pw on your gmail account.

    I'm also having admin look at our end to make sure nobody has hacked into our Forum. I feel our security is good, but I'm just going to have it double checked.

    We already tell Google not to pull the member profiles. But there is no email address there, so they are pulling that spam from somewhere else somehow.

    I've seen this in the past and its usually someone who has also pasted their email address in a post somewhere as well.
