Hi, I have been using my board for months without any problems at all. But yesterday I recieved an e-mail from Noreply telling me that my account was to be deleted because of missuse and that to stop this I should surrender my account details immediately. My internet provider had removed the message because they said it was either spam or a virus. It was most strange and I wondered if anybody else had recieved the same kind of e-mails.

Thanks

Don't give out any of your information! Any information needed concerning the board, Bboy and BbAdmin have access to! :smile:

Hi MichG,

SugarBearS is right, please do NOT give out your account information to anyone-if you can forward a copy of this email to me with the FULL header information on it we can track it down and take care of whoever had sent such a thing. The only reasons we would ever ask for account information is in the case of updating an email address or making changes to a board like renaming the URL or something so that there is NO DOUBT the person making the request is the true owner of the account/board they want us to do something to.

Forward that email to us at support@bbboy.net and if you can CC: it to me at pamster@cyber-soup.com just in case it comes to the support deck blank. Sometimes that happens, so in case it does the CC:'d copy will come thru on my personal email address. If you have any questions on the header information-like how to display it, in whatever email program or web based email you use there will be a 'Preferences' setting for 'Displaying Header Information' which you need to have set to 'Show Full Headers' so we can track this down for you. Thank you for reporting it-I am sure BbBoy will be anxious to track this down since I know NOTHING about your account being 'misused' :wink: :thumb:

Thanks for that. But unfortunately I took the advice of my ISP and deleted the original e-mail. The e-mail looked quite official and it said that it was sent from Noreply at BbBoy. I'm just relieved that it was a hoax. If I receive anything else from them I shall let you know. Meanwhile I can try and retrieve it. I only deleted it this morning.

Thanks

If you can't get it that is fine too MichG, I am just glad you didn't take it seriously. :wink: People can 'spoof' originating email addresses so I am betting that is what happened here. If you get it again forward it on over to us and we will check into who was behind it. :smile:

Will do and thanks for the advice. I am waiting to hear from my ISP about retrieving the e-mail and if I can get it back I will forward it. If not I will forward any further e-mails straight to you. Hopefully they have had their fun and it wont happen again. It's strange how some people get their kicks!

Thanks
