    I received this funny little email this evening.


    I'm Sara, contributor to a site called as a consumer protection resource to help lay people make informed decisions when pursuing a personal injury lawsuit and prevent them from being taken advantage of.

    Would you consider adding to your website's list of resources? exists solely as an objective third-party to inform the public about the process of hiring a personal injury attorney and pursuing a personal injury case. We hope to arm the public with the information they need to make educated decisions.

    I'd like to ask if you'd review, and if you agree that it's a valuable resource, perhaps consider adding a link to it from your site

    Thanks for your time,

    Sorry about that, was that via the forum or direct via your website?

    ARRIVALS Well-Known Member

    Directly to my email strangely. My website is down at the moment so couldn't have been through that, so I guess must have come through the forum. No idea how. No problem though. Do I get a % of any advertising money made?!

    What was the subject line as it would say username @ Graphic Design Forums if it had come from the forum.

    ARRIVALS Well-Known Member

    The subject was - Question about your site.

    Looks like she picked me out and came to me directly. :icon_thumbup:

    Actually, just realised you have your e-mail address in your signature :icon_eek: that's where it came from, would remove that a.s.a.p if I was you, or you will just get loads of spam in time.

    Oh right. So some sort of spambot picked my email out of the signature? Nasty.

    Yeah - they trawl the net and anything the resembles an email address will be added onto a big list and you'll get all kinds of junk sent to you. Its the risk you've got when it comes to putting your email address on any open web page such as this forum.

    Yeah even on websites I would recommend a form with captcha instead of a mailto: email address.

    Oh so I'm not the only one that receives messages from Santander, Barclays, Halifax and every other banking organisation out there. Good to know. :icon_thumbup:
