NHNE Near-Death Experience Network

Exploring all aspects of near-death experiences (and related phenomena).

Francis Blewusi, A Spammer Among Us (11/19/11)

Hello Everyone!

It looks like we've experienced our first spammer. I have things set up so that our network is protected from bots that attempt to get in by answering the profile questions with automated, generic answers. But if a real human being answers those questions, there is little I/we can do until they begin misbehaving, as Francis Blewusi did. He/she posted several messages today like this one:

.........

Good Day, 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 fransi_11@yahoo.com for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mr Francis Blewusi.

........

Francis, whomever he/she was, has been banned from our network. I encourage you NOT to respond to his/her request, and if you did, to ignore any future correspondence from this person. It's sad that spammers target networks like this one, but we all know that Francis will one day have to account for such behavior. In the meantime, you can help me safeguard our network by notifying me immediately if anything like this happens again. I do my best to monitor things on a daily basis, but other responsibilities (and sleep) prevents me from monitoring it 24/7. So I need your help, which, I think, is how it should be. We're all in this together and this is our community, not just mine. So thanks, in advance, for your help and I'm sorry Francis slipped through the cracks. I'll do what I can on my end to prevent this from happening in the future.

With Love & Best Wishes,
David Sunfellow

P.S. Epi, thanks for the heads up!

Dina, I'm assuming you received the same letter that I copied above. Many others did, too. I've tightened our security up so, hopefully, this won't happen again...

David,

These scammers are really a pest. He also wrote me yesterday telling me he needed to tell me such an important thing, that he couldnt tell me in public.  Fortunately I didnt beleive him. One must not give

one s email to a person one doesn t know. Sometime ago I got my email hacked, and the fellow was asking

for money to my list of friends. Fortunately, none of them sent him money.
