Yes, I received the same message - something about them picking up some unauthorised activity ( on Sunday the 7th ),regarding my Yahoo account with an IP originating in Russia.

 

Bizarre but not too concerned -what's the worst they can do??

Insult someone on the Whovians website, pretending to be me? :o

But just in case this happens, you'll know why...

Yesterday I received an email from Zilandria Desmond, "a fair girl in Rwanda" who addressed me as "my dearest" and wished to be my dear friend. She found me via Whovians.  It was in my Inbox and I opened it accidentally.

Has she contacted anyone else?

Sorry Gusset, yes we all got one. I think it's the same spammer as we had a few months back. She has been removed from the site now, so just delete the message she sent you.

Well, I didn't immediately take the cynical, zenophobic response to this email as others obviously had, and after some back and forth communication I established a lovely friendship with this engaging young girl who simply wants to become involved in genuine correspondence and interaction with like minded people outside Rwanda.
But found to my painful disbelief that she'd been cruelly deleted from this site!

It's a shame because I was fascinated by her idea to improve the conditions of the poor in Rwanda by investing all her money in my bank account to keep it safe from those who would take it from her.
If only I was able to give her my bank account details before she was deleted, things may have improved in Rwanda.

Thanks Patch.  I suspected it right away but was curious about her finding me via this site.  The email will be gone ASAP.
