I was recently asked by another member of CoM if I emailed her. I did not. It seems that  my e-mail account was used to send unsolicited spam messages during the recent week (so said a message from the yahoo webmaster). I have no idea how was that possible. If anyone else has received mails from fw_feanor@yahoo.com, remove it. I have nothing to do with those emails and I have no idea about their content.

I was the member, and it wasn't even an e-mail, it was a report of failed deliverance. I have an excellent virus protection, so I opened it (it was in the Bulk folder). It said that the yahoo user (Feanor, in this case) sent me an e-mail and that it failed to deliver. There was also a link to where I could see the message that led back to my inbox. It appears harmless, but if you are not confident in your virus defense, don't open it in any case.

EDIT: On the other hand, the e-mail also said: If the message will not displayed automatically, follow the link to read the delivered message.

I swear, spammers just get more and more stupid by the day  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

That's why I keep my e-mail address hidden. :P
And I have bad experience one one forum when I had my e-mail visible to others. The amount of spam on my inbox was horrilbe :shock:

I've just received one. I've deleted it of course. Who's the infamous villain that is joking around here? :P

Thanks for making us aware that it isn't really you, especially in lieu of recent goings-on. :roll:

It is nice that 99% of us are still friendly!

This was funny because my e-mail is always available in case someone needs to get in touch with me urgently, and I never had problems with spam  :shock: Having mail in the bulk folder is an event for me, I can tell you that  :shock:

I do believe those messages are from spam bots. I got a lot of complaints from people in the Yahoo!Groups I joined saying that I sent them virus in their email even though I didn't.
I don't want to look on the bright side... The light's blinding.
