Oh No!

I need some help. And I probably should mail ‘halp’ which I will do in due course – but – does anyone know why on earth when people mail me to the address in my profile that even though the mail gets to me it seems to be registered as someone/something else – namely marcie@store.com? Does this mean someone is using my mail id to buy stuff? Store.com is a shopping site. I’m really worried about this.

    sugar, i don’t even SEE an email address for you on your profile…

    Sav – oh no – that seems to have disappeared too – maybe when I went to beta. astrid@rockmother.com

    you’ve got mail

    So long as the money from the purchases are not being deducted from your account you’ll be OK.<br/>This is very strange though, something to do with Phishing and wireless networks perhaps?

    Ister – what the bloody hell is phishing – I thought that was a sort of Ben and Jerry’s icecream ingredient?!

    Phishing is a slang internet related term used to describe the action of people who, erm…hang on…<br/><br/><br/>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phishing<br/><br/>There you go.

    Ist – thanks – that made depressing reading

    Maybe someone is emailing the store.com person and sending you a a carbon copy? I’ve no idea how your mailer works, but on Outlook it is possible to have an "envelope" where the email address is totally different to the actual recipient’s address. Some email clients can’t show both addresses – envelope and actual recipient. Spammers use that a lot.

    Llewtrah – thank you for your advice – looks a bit spammy to me.

    does marcie appear as the sender on all the email you send? For example on my recent email to you inviting you to the blovel? Or did she appear as the recipient on that one?

    GSE: sender reads:<br/><br/>my email address <br/>brackets marcieATTstoredotcom end bracket

    Why, when blogger websites disappear do they get replaced by what appear to be dodgy commercial sites. Patroclus turned into a naughty knickers thing and Molly turned into something else. Could his be the same phenomena.

    I wouldn’t worry too much about being financially ripped off – store.com is simply an affiliate marketing site with links to other sites so you can’t buy anything there. As I’ve just posted on halp, you should run a virus/trojan check on your pc if you haven’t already

    Didn’t they advertise slimming pills on Molly’s site?

    Doc Du Reale – I think that is something to do with a spammer taking over your site. A turkish political militant hijacked a work site last year demanding release of political prisoners in Ankara. Quite interesting but a bit annoying at the same time.<br/><br/>Great She – thank you for your advice. I ashamedly don’t know how to run a virus check thingy – I usually get boffins with big tefal foreheads to do that sort of thing but I might give it a whirl.<br/><br/>Ister – hhmm…don’t remember – something like that..

    *Boggles*. Does this mean that you don’t have something like Norton installed on your PC? PC World, about ??50, I recommend it.

    Great She – I’ve got something called First Aid on my Mac – I think that’s the same thing. I used to have Norton Disk Doctor – not quite sure where it went. Am I making your toes curl? Now you know why my avatar is Olive!

    You’re on a Mac? OK, the chances of you having a virus are pretty slim then. Above that, I don’t know anything much about Macs but if your First Aid jobby lets you scan for spyware, trojans etc, then do so.
