Hi,
just a quick heads-up in case it's useful to anyone.

I have now received two spam/scam emails to my primary email address (not the one on my account here at OF) from someone calling themselves "Jack Foltz" at "Fixthephoto.com". I guess the idea is for me to respond or click the "Unsubscribe" link. Yeah, right :cautious:
Here's the latest one:

Hello Orbiter-forum Team, I hope you’re doing well.

I'm Jack Foltz from Fixthephoto.
Your website is beautifully constructed and attractive to me.
We invite you orbiter-forum.com to become our partner in links and content exchanging

A link from a site such as ours (DR80) will make positively impacton your site's growth and on your traffic.

I believe we all needs traffic, sales, brand awareness, don't we?
I am interested to hear your thoughts on this matter. I am looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards,
Jack Foltz

Needless to say, Mr.Foltz goes straight to my spam folder now.
Don't know how he/it got my email address and connected it with OF, but that's the internet for you.

Cheers,
BrianJ

Read an article the other day that said that no matter what you do, your personal information passes through over 300 pairs of hands each day.

Probably not quite true. Most of that is probably automated, so not literally "pairs of hands". The ultimate impact on your privacy is no less catastrophic.

Thanks for the feedback, guys.
Spam emails are certainly nothing new - but this is the first I had mentioning orbiter-forum.com!
Received 3rd email today. Ignoring til he gets tired and goes away ;-)
