Blogging

Spam, Spam, Spam

Yesterday, as I was checking and reading my emails, my attention was caught by a blogger friend’s post.  I couldn’t believe it at first, so I head on to her blog. True enough, my face was plastered all over ( it’s okay, Gee, it’s for a good purpose), because apparently I posted spammy comments on her blog. I reread the post, not believing what just happened and later on, it  finally registered on my mind, that it was indeed my face that was attached to those spam comments.

Grrr!! and more Grrr! Until now, I’m pissed! I calmed down yesterday but as I’m writing this, I’m getting mad again!

I investigated the matter and it turned out that my email was used in commenting on Gee’s blog. That same email I also use in most of my transactions and in commenting in other blogs. Now, I have to make another email address, change passwords etc. I hope what happened in Gee’s blog was the only one I spammed. But if there are other blogs, please inform me and I am really sorry but I didn’t spam you.

It was so embarrassing! Really, I am so furious and embarrassed but glad because Gee notified me immediately. Thanks again, Gee for being vigilant about this. At least now, our blogger friends are aware that this could happen.

I researched before I posted again a feedback on that particular post. I don’t want to elaborate was else transpired yesterday but just a bit of the story…. I found out that my neighbor was using my wifi.. and he knows me on the blogosphere.. I already posted it on Gee’s blog and the Barangay officials prompted me not to say anything in the world wide web until the matter is resolved.

This was a hard lesson I learned and I thought I was safe and invincible!

The whole story can be found here. Please read it so that you may be warned.

*** For the spammer who used my email address:

I hope you stop whatever you’re doing because it will come back to you tenfold! If you are getting paid for spamming, then the money you put on the table and feed your family comes from the dirty jobs that you do. MAHIYA KA NAMAN! If you’re a Filipino, I know you’d understand that but if not, I know you can understand English, so SHAME ON YOU!

Pasalamat ka me pinagaralan akong tao and I wouldn’t do anything else to further ruin my reputation! I will not stoop down to your level!

To those reading this, may you not fall prey to such scumbags like my scammer. Whooo! At last I can be at peace, though not eternally..

  1. I guess the spammer was able to snatch the email from somewhere and used it to spam the blogs where you usually comment. This kind of incident happened to my friend too. I got too many spam comments.

  2. That is really not so fair. I also have experienced someone used my email to send spam emails to my contact lists. Grrr talaga!

  3. Naku katakot naman yang spammer na yan. Well at least sis hindi nagamit sa ibang online transactions mo.

  4. The moment I saw your avatar on the spam comment, I knew something was fishy that’s why I checked on the IPs. The other IP is from Michigan, USA while yours is from the Philippines. That’s when I assumed that someone was “impersonating” you just to have their spam comments approved.

    Sorry sis, na-HB ka pa tuloy.

  5. That’s just not good to hear. The only concerns that I have is what if you don’t know the person yet. Do you think that the civilised thing that Georyl have done to you be done to others?

  6. Hi! this is an eye opener for us. people doing this does not have any conscience at all.

  7. You’re the second blogger I’ve read that’s talking about this. What in the world is going on? This is terrible. I hope this is resolved soon and sorry it happened to you.

  8. yeah, i read those mommy from gee’s blog. akala ko naman eh, nag punta ka ng internet cafe so naiba ang IP address pero yon pa rin ang email add. well, at least okay na ngayon…at sa spammer mo, Diyos na ang bahala sa kanya.

  9. sorry about that! we really have to be careful all the time. thanks for your post.

  10. That’s terrible! I’m glad you got it all sorted out. We should really be careful about our passwords and stuff, never know when other people will take advantage.
