Have you ever found yourself listed as a member to a site you never joined?

Post by Breezey Breezey on Thu Dec 30, 2010 6:08 am

How does anyone end up as a member or fan of someone on a site they never joined?

It seems I am a member of a site I don't really know anything about and am a fan of someone I haven't talked to in over a year. Hmmm..

Yep ... I totally agree!
... This hasn't happened to me ... yet ... giggle
For a while, I was getting lots of e-mails
telling me that I had won the lottery ... yeah, right ...
when I started bouncing them back, they stopped.

FanBox... anyone ever hear of it? I got notices that others were sending me mini videos and in order to view them, they wanted me to enter my cell phone number. Silly people!

I deleted my so called "account" there today.

I wish I had seen this earlier. Fanbox seems to be nothing but trouble. I have gotten invites from people who never joined. Seems if anybody signs up, they automatically send invites to everybody in your email contact list, and then those people are automatically members. If you get the invite and go there, the same thing happens to you, and so on, and so on...

How is that legal? What you're basically saying is they invade your email to find your contacts?

I think technically they get away with it because of the fine print you agree to when you sign up. They probably give you a choice to opt out that gets lost in all the mumbo-jumbo, which is what they count on.

I know you've seen websites that ask if you want to invite contacts when you sign up; and if you decide to do that you can invite people individually, or have them invite everybody on your email list. Well, with some of the more unscrupulous sites, they give you the choice, but hide the options in the fine print, so it isn't quite so obvious...

Okay... but... I never signed up and really wasn't invited. I just kept getting email notices of tiny videos from a couple of people. When I just looked at the site to see what it was, it said I was a member and had a fan. The fan is someone I haven't talked to in at least a year.
It also listed a lot of people I know and wanted me to click yes or no if I knew them, which I didn't do.

No. (to the original question) [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] - at least I haven't heard of
- or from ! - [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] - any...
AND...
Leave-us-not overlook that freakin' "spam-bot" !
(or whatever it is ) ... roaming around Yahoo !
(I find that hitting SPAM ends any further "Ads"/friends connecting/whatever/ ! - generated from it. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] ("Oh-darn")

That miserable... *!* [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] - has spammed about a gazillion
(conservative estimate) Yahoo Members - (email, Y!A, wherever!) -
BE-cause... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]... ! ... you/me/(anyone else !) - are a "member" of/on
PULSE... if you've -EVER- signed up/participated/ (hell, IDK ..)
"dropped by accidentally" ?? - ANYwhere on Yahoo!
And...
Yahoo doesn't let anyone DELETE themselves from "Pulse" or
any of the other myriad ! Yahoo! sites. (grrrr.... [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.])

Hmmm... I've been trying to figure out how to delete unwanted comments on your pulse page. Seems it's not really YOURS since you can't really manage the thing.
