QUECHUP SCAM

Someone recently asked me to join Quechup, an online community last week and I obliged. I usually do. (that invite turned out to be spam, too)

Tonight this online outfit starts emailing everyone in my email address book. Everyone. And I certainly didn't authorize it.

So please accept my apologies for the hassling email if you happened to receive one. Or god/goddess forbid a hassling cellphone call. That's how I realized what was going on when I got an email on my cell phone from this community.

NOW I see that everyone else is having the same problem. Word to the wise: avoid it like the fucking plague. Bastards. Can you imagine some bullshit email intrusion ripping through your email addresses? All those employers, relatives, friends, corporations, newsletters, ISPs, hosts, etc. Damn.

I cannot delete and/or respond to these return emails fast enough.

Oh how I wish I'd read this post before I thought to myself, "Isn't that nice? Susan's inviting me into some cool thing."

They got me.

What to do?

Hi Theo and Gordon. I am so sorry about this mess. But it is good to talk with you both tonight!

*hugs* No worries. A few months ago, I got taken by them too. It's embarrassing, but I hope now that more publicity is on them, they'll shut down.

ABOUT EBC

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into Blogger.com. I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
