I received this in my email inbox this morning. The fact that they mined my email address from IUOMA was pretty annoying. Is nothing sacred?!?!? Miss Goodness will not pine for me for long I fear.

received the same e-mail. Since the profiles are open, this kind of spam can happen. No fun indeed. Just delete and move on is the best to do. I will check out if I can secure profiles better with an option. - Ruud
Yes I did notice that all comments made upon this network do appear on Google now. On FB there is a possibility to go in the settings to change the confidentiality status but I haven't seen any on this Ning network. If there is such a possibility it would be nice to let members know in order to avoid such circumstances to happen.

Thanks Rudd! No worries. I have to say that these are getting pretty creative.
The pages of the IUOMA network are now set on open for members only. Only the main page is open for everybody. So spammers have it a bit more difficult to get the addresses from the site.

Hi. Thought you might want to know about this one as well. I just received it today. It's kind of stange how they got my email as I don't have it posted on my IUOMA page:

 

Hello
 My name is Miss Grace; A loving and caring Lady,I got your contact at (iuoma-network.ning.com )and am interested in you,contact me through my Email address so that i can send you my photos and from there we can go ahead.
I want you to understand that race or distance does not matter but loving and caring matters a lot in life.
I look forward to hear your responses  soonest.
Yours truly,
Grace.

I got the same one, it is really annoying!
Rudd,
I am not sure if I am directing this question to the right place, so apologies in advance. I googled my name and my IUOMA page comes up and can be accessed along with my friends page. From your April 2nd 2011 post I thought it had been set to be open for IUOMA members only. Also some posts I made on other people's pages or walls also appear. I like that we can pop in and read other members pages but kind of creepy anyone on the net can read them. Is there anything we can do about that?
