Ethnic Jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Someone has managed to obtain my personal email from this site, has "something vital to disclose" and asks that I contact her privately at a yahoo address.  This person has links to the ethnic jewel site in her email which when followed, lead to my messages but there is no message from this individual.  According to the name she gives, she is not a member.  Is there any way to prevent this kind of thing?

Welcome to the club ... its a con artist based in Thailand

Sorry for the incovenience

 Interestingly, once I signed out, I had to reset my password as I was unable to sign in after receiving the spam.  All's well now. Thank you both. 

Same exact thing happened to me today, 2/10/14. The email seemed to be from someone who is a member on this website but that email was no doubt hacked/hijacked!

Hi Sarah. Thanks you for your note.  I understand that this person has been removed.  I still have the original email which is as follows:

Good Day,

How is everything with you,I picked interest on you after going
through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you
immediately.I have something very vital to disclose to you,but I
found it difficult to express myself here,since it's a public
site.Could you please get back to me on:( michelleadams153@yahoo.co.th )
for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Ms Michelle Adams.

HI Sarah,

I'm not sure if replying in this way is what you mean by the website mail system and do apologize if it's not.  Yesterday I received a message from someone named Joy (joydesmondllcc@hotmail.com) asking me to get in touch with her.  I'm sure it's one of these spam type of messages and I haven't replied.  Upon checking her profile, I see that she is no longer a member and imagine that she has been removed from this forum.  Would you like me to copy the message with what headers I can to you or shall I assume this has already been dealt with?

Thank you,

Anjali

Hi everyone, just to explain, the member has sent a message to you via the ning internal messaging system, which is forwarded privtely to your e mail address. She does not have your e mail address and has not hacked you.
The only way for her to have the adress is if you reply.

We do occasionally have spam from fake members, but we do work hard to keep this at a minimum and to ban anyone who is not a genuine jewel lover asap.

Warm wishes. Sarah.

I just got the same spam thing from same sounding person yesterday. I reported it to Cordelia who has replied. That person has left this site. I had a picture of myself  in my page here, which I have changed, and have blocked anyone with that name  who had contacted me from the EthnicJewels site....Otherwise, I really like this site. Cheers, Kim!

I received this also so came on to the site. Thanks for bringing this to the groups attention!

The person is no longer a member and I have blocked them trying to re join.
