If you are receiving a PM from a brand new member. Please be careful. I received the following from someone that joined today.


“Hi. My name is Miss Gift, I am very interested to know you well, I came across your profile today on www.cuteembroidery.com,and became so much excited on your profile, Please If you don't mind an…..

At this point it got cut off. I am afraid if they figure out how to post complete that it may lead some to a bad link or whatever that person has in mind. Stay safe Angie

Once they have your address, they can hack into your mail account and have a field day with your address book. Happened to me and to a couple of friends. There are 2 things that I've done and hasn't happened agaiin.
1. changed my password to a really good one.

2. Totally deleted my addresses online. I use Incredimail and all of my addresses are on my personal computer. So even if they can figure out my password, won't do them a bit of good. Only addresses they can get are from the letters in the trash and I empty that several times a day.

I saw this in a post here yesterday. I just steered clear of it because the name Miss Gift was suspicious and they only had 1 flower. Thank goodness it is gone. Marg

The complete text was yesterday here in a post and many cuties made a comment that they think this is a pishing mailadress (a hole mailadress was in the text!). Now the post is gone (had also commented and marked it) and I think that Miss Veronika deleted it cause somebody was clever enough to report it as abuse.
That's why nobody should give his mailadress in his profile. Everybody can send than spam and even bader stuff :o(
Greetings, Bettina
