Someone signed me up for a dating site who is constance marie dating
My Gmail inbox is a clean, spam-free place, and I like to keep it that way.Like many of you, I use a separate email address for funneling new site registrations, newsletters and sales alerts.Online services typically just let people signup with whatever address they give.The better ones require email validation - so as long as you don't validate the email, those ones shouldn't cause you any problems.I was able to get his information (name, address, etc) from all the places that he's signed up for using my email, but I have been unable to find him to get a hold of him about this matter.
Next came the confirmation request to video game-watching service Twitch, (associated to a completely different username), which is laughable because I can't play a video game to save my life.On the other hand, why this concentration; why the pattern of new account signups? this is the work of something (or someone) most foul. You know, create a strong password, check for suspicious messages (yep, I see them!), update your browser, report dubious emails, that kind of thing.(I already use one of the best tips, two-step verification.) One of Google's other online suggestions is to check my account for eyebrow-raising markers of hijacking, that is, the unauthorized use of my account by a person or agent. Apart from violating your digital property and identity (and tarnishing your good name by using you to do their dirty work), the act of kicking out would-be hijackers from an account can be a huge hassle.(If you ever think your Gmail account has been compromised, start the recovery process here.) Big chunks of missing dates in an email folder (like the Sent folder) is a big red flag, indicative of a hacker deleting legitimate email as a way of scrubbing evidence that the account was used to send spammy email, possibly the malicious kind. There is another explanation for all the sudden signups, apart from hackers and Weird Uncle Steven pranking me with so many email signups. If you've ever sent an automated out-of-office message from your account when you went on vacation, you've already encountered a mailbot, so you know that these software agents aren't necessarily nefarious on their own.
Friends, I just found out a thank you for signing up from a certain paid to click site which I never signed up at.
