Be Careful About Personal Information On Websites

Please be careful about giving out personal info on websites, including thriftyfun.com. Last week I posted a comment about a cute little dog photo on thriftyfun.com. I then got a message from the woman saying I sounded nice and could I email her at her email address. I did so, and now have received 4 spams from her.

They are about politics and what not and are chain emails. Nothing I am interested in. I am glad I didn't give her any personal info and I'm glad I have good security on my computer. From now on, I'll stick to messages through thriftyfun.com, and not give out my email address.

it seems a bit strange to me, that you would email anyone just because they say you sounded nice. Since you did email her, you can slow down or stop receiving spam mail from her by using the spam filter built into your email client.

That is why they are there, put them to use.

I had ran an ad in a refunding magazine for coupons, & such. I had a lady not interested in the coupons, etc. respond to me by sending me all kinds of unwanted junk via snail mail, for a few months. I'm just thankful this doesn't happen very often.
