This message is not for PHP/MySql help in anyway but is posted due to the
high level of spam on this lately and some new people to the internet may
not be aware of the possible risks people can get into if they follow any
of the spam emails on here.
If the topic is not related to a list but was sent via the list do not
respond to it, either in-directly via this list or the list your on or
direct to the reply-to email. But if your the curious person and want to
visit a website listed please do not just simply click the link that is
displayed in the email. Copy/Paste it into your web browser and surf it.
NEVER click a website link directly from a email, even if you trust the
sender, it's so easy to send fake emails that may appear to be from REAL
PEOPLE but their not! Get into the habbit of copy/pasting it. It's a
Never send money to people you DON'T KNOW! Never trust an email from
someone that you don't know asking to send and or deposit money into a
bank account or paypal account. Normally it's a scam and the money is
just going to the scammer.
PayPal emails, please update your account info etc. Never trust emails
with an paypal address. Never click it, copy/paste it or simply visit
http://www.paypal.com/ and login to your account, if their is a problem
with it they will list it as you login.
The spam recently on here is really stupid, if the admin of this list is
about why not think about changing the permissions of list signups to need
to be approved by admin before actually being subscribed instead of them
only having to verify by a web address in an email. Would slow the spam
down heaps, has elsewhere and would be worth considering.
Anyways be careful people, most of you would be aware of the issues
surrounding spam but this posting was to make sure that everyone is aware
of it happening. Of course this email would not cover the whole info but
is a starting point for you.
Take care all and be careful.
