Spammers Using Flickr As Bait

Caught this one in the mail this morning…. bravo.

Hey, I dont know if you already know or if its the same
person, but I’ve seen your EXACT pictures on another site.
I copied the link if u want to check it out. The person is
trying to pass it off as saying that its his/hers

who knows tho…maybe that person might be the real owner
and this flickr account you have is the fake one?

in any case thought i’d just message you to let you know.

here’s that link to that page:

um, i dont know if you’ll be able to see the pix, cuz the
site requires u to be logged in, the site is free
registration anyways.


Gimme a break….

    Its a little annoying that they’re resulting to flickr mail for spam now as well. They’ll try get you everywhere!

    Hahaha, they just keep coming up with new ideas, don’t they? Did you also get that 4th of July greeting card messages where “your good friend”, and “your family member sent you a greeting card, click here to see it.”

    Oh they’re striking with that too. I’ve had enough fake greeting card emails in the past two weeks to write a book.

    Pity, as I enjoy the odd greeting card from friends!
