Got an email about a topic regarding buyVM

Got an email from here, subject '[LowEndTalk] pielies mentioned you in Calling all BuyVM members', but when I click the link it gives a permission error. I'm out of the loop, what happened there?

    What the fuck? Why the PMS would you click that link?

    Seriously. What the hell?

    't was the first mail I got from LET this year, probably someone metioned me in a topic: https://lowendtalk.com/discussion/174504/calling-all-buyvm-members - but I can't access is anymore... Which is why I'm curious what happened there.

    Basically someone mass mentioned people to spam their inboxes.

    There was a LET post made, but it has since been deleted. Someone tagged a bunch of LET members in it. Was gone before I got around to seeing it.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Oh that explains a lot. I'm a happy buyVM customer since 2012, so no worries there. 10/10, but such a topic on LET does get my interest, especially when it's forbidden when I open the email link.

    I would never click any links from an email unless I am absolutely sure that it is safe.

    I've got a specific unique email for Lowendtalk, so if that is used I'm quite sure it's from here. Google/mail thinks it's okay, so thats another guarantee and I do have a a forum message here regarding the same topic.

    deanWinchester doesn't even click on the "Quote" button here, let alone links from an email.

    I got mentioned on LET & LES.

    Someone knows what it was about?

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    My email on LET is a dud, so I wouldn't get any emails from LET.

    But personally I would never trust any email from LET itself, let alone any link.

    Just someone scraping usernames off both forums and then tagging everyone in some random thread.

    This was pertaining to the notifications of being tagged on the forums.

    Not about being the recipient of the phishing/spam email.

  • @DP said: This was pertaining to the notifications of being tagged on the forums.

    I know. No tag for me, no e-mail from LET. No big enough to get auto-tagged from spammer, FeelsBadMan.

    Quite an assumption. I wish you well

    I think last month didn't, but was ill, moving house and had a deadline for a book.

  • I got the email too. Has someone leaked the BuyVM customer list?

    Someone just mass Tagged people here at random which triggered the email from LET that you got.

    Yes, including BuyVM's official list of LET users. People have been after the list of LET users that are BuyVM customers for years, this breach will definitely be on CNN.

  • I got the email too :/

    Looks like increasing mentions and mention notifications may be a good way to increase user retention @jbiloh

  • I feel a bit privileged to be part of this exclusive club. Are we going to have a secret handshake or BuyVM pre-BF coupon code?

  • I'm not very good at sign language, but I take that as a yes.

    um, no, that was sarcasm

  • I also got an email. May it be related to these other scam emails I just received?

    Yeah there's someone that has been scraping emails from our discord/users githubs/youtubes/etc and mass emailing them phishing attempts.

    Thats been going on for a few weeks.
