Email Scammers

Hello everyone,

I am probably going to remove my email addresses from my signature here because when I checked my Yahoo! email, I found 24 messages from 22 different scammers.

https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/www.onlinethreatalerts.com/article/2017/6/13/beware-of-att-yahoo-mail-box-has-exceeded-the-storage-limit-phishing-scam/amp/

The link above is to an article I found that has the exact message one scammer (pretending to be Yahoo!) sent me.

Here are the people who emailed me:
New scammers:
1) Mohammed Hossain
2) (Deleted Email, Don’t Remember Name)
3) Emile Kenold
4) Fernandez Dale (2 emails)
5) Maria Kunde
6) Mabel Ondikwa
7) Monika (No Last Name)
8- Dương Thị Thu Thủy
9) Y.A.H.O.O.! (Fake email address)
10) Kadi Balla
11) Biyu Fung Chi
12) Inga Beale
13) Marlaine Kabore
14) Musa Kamal
15) Margret C. Ettie
16) Sohail Ahmed (2 emails)
17) Jhorge James
18) Sikindar Sikindar
19) Nicole B. Marois
20) John Paul
21) Sali Zama
22) Leena (No Last Name)

I suspect that maybe these people are finding my email from here or Game Jolt maybe? Should I be worried about this?

Thank you,
NickamonPoppytail

It's certainly possible. In general, you shouldn't have your email address in a public place. If you need to communicate with somebody via email, send your address to them in a private message.

For Live Support: Join our discord channel and ping me @justin.

Thank you Justin. Although it could have been entering random addresses into emails and seeing if they’re active accounts. Considering the amount of views Poppytail games get regularly, I doubt it’s Game Jolt.

Mohammed Hossain has sent something to Gmail too. Maybe he’s the only one who found the addresses here or on GJ. Deleted it now.

Edit: HOSSAIN WAS NOT THE ONLY ONE. Fernandez, Monika, Duong, Mabel, Jhorge, Sikindar, Nicole, Musa, John and Kadi all sent things to Gmail. They were in another folder.

Also some new scammers:
23) Gloria Paul
24) George Gumel
25) Devid Ben

I definitely made a mistake here.

If anyone needs my emails, here’s some binary with my emails in it. Translating it does not give you directly what they are though. Please PM if you want my email address.

Edit: Also changed my signature.

Three new scammers from Yahoo to add to the list:

26) Melanie Carrier-Vernand
27) Frank Yacouba/Obowo Patrick (he starts the email with one, sender title shows up as another)
28) Mary John
29) Moses Kekana

Leena also sent another email to Yahoo

Gonna check Gmail.

Edit: Yacouba Frank was on Gmail. Except they finally decided on a name and kept it consistent.

Yahoo: Nicole Benoite Marois and a new scammer: #30) Amancio Ortega.

Gmail: Nicole Benoite Marois. Again. This is about the fourth email they've sent to me.

Is it just me having this problem? My email addresses were only on Stencyl and Game Jolt. I'm thinking of getting another email address to use for Stencyl and Game Jolt now.

I don't think keeping a list of spammers is going to accomplish anything. The names are probably generated randomly.

I very rarely get spam on GMail. Or, rather, spam very rarely gets through the spam filter. Just push 'report spam' on any spam mail that gets through.

Thank you Merrak, although not all of the names are randomly generated. I’ve found quite a couple of these scammers via Google using the same messages.
