I keep getting an email from this site saying i have a virus on my commputer and that I need to scan it, it provides a link. Who do i forward this to for i feel its a spammer with a virus? Its aimed at me, bigjohn and one or two others.


Thank you.

You have your email in your signature. There's nothing they can do about that, any bot scanning the web can pick it up.

i don't have mine in any thing anywhere except on the back end of the system here when I signed up and other places when i signed up and I get the emails every week, probably 2 times from every site that I am on except bb...i get it from here occasionally, aadicts, elite and a few others.

What is crazy is that it is signed the admin of one of those sites and it IS the actual admin but the admin has NO IDEA what or who sent it, lol...I just keep deleting it.

We'll reply if we know about the thread... We're not going to send you an email saying you have a virus. Depending on your email provider, you should be able to look at the root address of the email. It may say anabolicminds but the email will be from another site. You can also check the properties of the link in the email to see where it's going to send you.

There are many ways that this could happen. However, feel free to shoot me a PM and you can forward me your email and I can check it out.

Exclamation There's no VIRUS
DO NOT RESPOND TO PM's LIKE THIS:

"A virus alert was noticed on your computer.
We highly recommend you to check your computer and perform online virus check at our site immediately..."

This is a SPAMMER
From aadicts, so it was just some spammer i guess.

I seen it too, I mean why even bother trying to argue it? Hilarious
as an FYI the [email protected] something.com part was not removed by me. I put it in my sig and i assume a MOD removed it. But either way it is not an email addy.

The email looks like this:

DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL!

I am a MOD "AT" Xtreme. My email addy is not [email protected] I get the emails at my email address and [email protected] is NOT my nor anyone elses email address. (that i know of) I would have to own that site to have that email addy.

First, those links say anabolicaddiction, not anabolicminds. Sounds like a phishing scam. It is entirely possible to receive phishing email scams that look like, but do not really originate from said source.
