One of our members reported getting an email at their private email account saying Bouncy Tina has replied to your message on the EBP site blah blah. You may have seen these messages when somebody PM's you. This one was bogus. Sorry but we don't have any members named Bouncy Tina so don't fall for it. You get notified by the title so there no need to open the email anyway. Go to the website to check for real messages. I get the same fake messages saying somebody wants to connect on Facebook or LinkedIn. I alway delete the email and check the real account to see if there is a true request. This is just the first report I've seen of it here on our little site.

The question here is how did BT get the member's email address? I guess I would think twice before listing my email address in a post. If you are selling or buying from the want ads, send the other party your info via PM. That's the only way I can think up they could connect you to your email address. We may have over a thousand members but many are folks that get paid to troll for your info to send you spam.

Bon Appetite!
