Email sent today stating your account will be upgraded is not from us

  1. I've still not received anything from photo.net (except the phishing emails). Checked spam folders, etc. Whatever you did that supposedly went to all apparently didn't work. Whatever the phishing folks did apparently did work. BTW, not a complaint, just info point.

  3. No alert e mail received here. Ditto. Got at least one phish.

  4. I did receive the alert email, but had to go looking for it in a spam folder. For this and similar sites, I use a contact email address hosted at Yahoo - specifically to keep it at arm's length from all of my "real" email addresses. Yahoo considered PN's legitimate alert message to be spam, and that's where it put it. I've told Yahoo it's NOT spam, but of course the alert message itself is formatted in such a way that it's just about guaranteed to trigger spam filters when scanned. So it's a fair bet that many people reporting no receipt of that message just haven't looked in their spam folders.
     
  5. Yeah, no. If the scammers have figured out how to make their message deliverable and the photo.net admins have not, there are bigger problems than just looking in your spam folder. For the record, I've looked in my spam folder and mail logs and haven't seen anything from photo.net.

    Checked my spam folder as well...no email from photo.net.
     
  7. I'm afraid I clicked on one of the fake email links. What should I do now?

  9. no longer a member

    no longer a member Site hacked into and email sold to spammers

    This site was hacked into to get user info, now the email I use very rarely is receiving 2-3 spam emails a day because my email was sold to spammers. I received the spoof email that my account was upgraded to premium, and no I did not click on anything in that email, but someone got my email from here and distributed it widely.

    I have asked for my account to be removed or deleted and got no response. There is no option to remove myself. Oh boy I get to change my user name and add a fake email, big deal. So I imagine the administrators will remove this post and stay in denial and not help me. Good sites like this are not worth the bother if emails are hacked. Thanks for no recourse dudes.

  17. How can i test if my pc is infected? I have surely clicked on the links of the false mail. I did two scans (with macafee and bitdefender) and nothing was reported, bhut antiviruses are effective or might not detect it?
