    Has Anyone Else Been Propositioned By PM Or Email?

    Has anyone else here had a private message or email with a declaration of 'true love' followed by a proposition and a contact email?

    The name in the message is Mirabel. I've just received both! She claims to have read my profile and wants contact.

    I showed it to my wife and, thankfully, she has a sense of humour.

    I hope this isn't some forum member's idea of a joke.

    Of course, I shall delete the message and confine the email to the bin without responding other than mentioning it here to see if others have received these.

    Thanks.

    Hmmm, sounds like random Spam to me, Michael - probably not related to anyone here at the Forum, but very much related to a Spam Bot randomly grabbing PM and email info to send you junk. Destroy all without ever investigating further!

    I thought maybe you were trying to set up a Forum dating service when I first read your subject line.

    Hello Randy,

    Thanks for replying.

    I did think it was possibly spam but if it is then others would have received it .. I think. I certainly do intend to, as the Daleks would put it, 'Ex-term-in-ate, ex-term-in-ate, des-troy, des-troy.' (I did that in my best Dalek voice).

    Hey, you might be on to something here Randy. A new room for Garritan Libraries Forum, Garritan Dating Room. Might liven things up a bit in our forums. They'd be flocking here from all over the internet.

    Excellent Dalek impersonation, Michael!

    Well, that's not correct about others getting the same thing when it's Spam. I wouldn't be overly alarmed, but earlier I meant that the Spam Bot randomly picked out Your info, probably at the same time it was picking out info from several other totally unrelated sites.

    Hopefully more junk from that source won't continue.

    Meanwhile-- Hmmm, The Garritan Dating Room. --!

    Re: Has Anyone Else Been Propositioned By PM Or Email?

    A few years back, I used to get a lot of emails from a company claiming that they represented "beautiful women who wish to live in the US", and that they would be happy to marry me (if they only knew...). At the same time, I also got a lot emails from people wishing to sell me viagra; also a lot of emails for very low mortgage rates. In the end I figured it was all from the same person: with so many wives, I would certainly need the viagra, and then where would I put them? Ah, a new house! And I could get a low interest mortgage!! In a very warped way, it all kind of made sense...

    On a related note, I received a message via Indaba Music from another Indaba Music member who saw my profile and "wanted to get to know me better." She has just a headshot on her profile with no music projects listed. Needless to say, I'm very weary of such messages.
