I just received an email from Donald Nitchie over at Banjo Newsletter.

The subject was "Check In" and the text was:

Hello,
How are you? I need a little favor from you please,
Thanks,

Strange. Wonder if his account got hacked. Anyone else get something similar?

Hack, and hackneyed.

I got one, too. just out of curiosity, I replied, and got back this stock stupid bottom-feeder scam:

Thanks for responding, I am sorry for bothering you with this mail. I need to get AN APPLE GIFT CARD for my Niece. It's her birthday but i can't do this now because my knees are giving me problems as well. I am going up and down one step at a time. This method is neither graceful! or fast!, and the stores around here are out of stock and i tried purchasing online but unfortunately no luck with that. Can you get it from any store around you? I'll pay back. Kindly let me know if you can handle this?

 

Await your soonest response,

I never respond to any emails that look strange. That is why I posted it here to see any responses. Thanks for the heads up.

Have you notified BNL that their e-mail account has been hacked?  If not, please do and if you don't want to, let me know and I'll tell them so they can change their password and stop the hacking.

Edited to add:  I emailed BNL with an URL to this thread so he can take care of the problem.

I contacted Donald as I too received one around noon today and got the same spiel with it. He replied and said the email had been hacked and was getting it straightened out.

I also received an e-mail that he had changed his password and hopefully taken care of the problem.

EVERYBODY ( except for that guy making rectangular banjos in Wisconsin) is running a scam.

I got this also. Is there any way we can report it and stop whoever’s doing it?

Donald has changed his password, so that should take care of getting spam from his e-mail.  Other than that, I doubt you can stop spammers from hacking into other people's e-mails.
