Many of you have received an e-mail from someone calling themselves "Sandra Don". This person references my blog and asks you to correspond to them. As far as I can tell, this is a SPAM e-mail from a location in Senegal, Africa. Please do not reply to them or other wise encourage this behavior.
I think this person is culling the e-mail information from the blogger profile of people who have left comments on my blog. If you have received this SPAM e-mail and have never commented or do not have your e-mail in the blogger profile, please let me know as this would mean that my feedblitz list might have been hacked. I need to know the source of this nonsense before it can be effectively stopped. If you have seen this problem before and know how to stop it, please let me know.
I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and appreciate your understanding and support.
Update: This seems to be happening on other blogs as well. My Pink Stamper posted the following-
"If anyone receives and e-mail from email@example.com, please do not open it. They are someone phishing for love on my website. So far 3 people have e-mailed me this morning. It is obviously a professional. Just always be careful when you leave personal information on anyone's blog or websites. Get a separate e-mail just for posting. You can get one for free from Yahoo, Google, Hot Mail, etc. Takes a few seconds and then you have a secure way for people to get a hold of you online."
