Saturday, March 14, 2009 Social Networking??? - Here is One To AVOID

The Email Spam Scam
"Jessica Tagged You!"

Guess You've Figured out Is The Scammer Spammer

More than likely, you have gotten an email that appears to have come from a buddy or business acquaintance of your through It is not. is phishing for your personal information by duping you into participating in this social-networking fraud.

Do NOT enter or provide with any of your personal information if you want to protect your privacy and the privacy of your entire address book! Tagged mail will not ask you if you want to send email "tags" to your friends. They are kind enough to send a "tagged" email to everyone in your address book without bothering you with asking permission. Isn't that nice of them? Note: insert sarcasm here in case you aren't a sarcastic person.

In addition to this, IF you have a Google account of any kind (Google Analytics, Google Adsense, Google Mail, etc.,) they have devised schemes to attempt to get you to enter your account information for your Google accounts. I can not tell you how bad THAT is.

We want you to know who " and" is.
