I got an email today in my personal email from a "supposedly" member named Frank Kwabena saying he needs me to contact him about something and that he left a message on my Oozing Goo wall. I thought this to be strange as new members do not send emails like to to members so I did a little research. Turns out it is a VIRUS!!! DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!!!! I WILL BE NOTIFYING THE MODS OF THIS JUST IN CASE THEY WANT TO ALSO POST A WARNING UP!!!
P.S. The weird thing is he goes through social media sites!!!
HERE IS WHAT THE EMAIL LOOKS LIKE
FRANK KWABENA added a comment to your profile on Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.

It was obviously caught because he is not a member anymore and there is no comment on my wall!!
He's been suspended for spam. Thanks for the heads up from Keith and Carol.
I just signed up to this site, and have something in my profile about trying to build my own lamp. Figured it was a mod offeringadvice. I guess the joke is on me, my computer seems to be fine though.
No worries - we get the occasional troll from time to time! All is well. Lamp on!
Glad you got him I just saw that in my email.
Oh the world of computers, lol!!! Just goes to show ya, anytime something seems weird on a computer, like any suspicious emails or whatever, trust your first judgment and just ignore it until you find out if it's legit......
I suspended the account again. What's weird is that this particular name comes up ALL THE TIME as spam. Must be a junk name that people use to spam forums.
If anyone has problems with a member, please email me and I'll take care of it.
I hate to bring back an old discussion, but this email is going around again. The wording is almost exactly the same, but this time from a "member" named Annabel Duru.
