    Word of Mouth.Com

    Word of Mouth recently sent me an email. "Someone is checking up on you." They supplied a link to information about email and a few other things.

    By visting the site I can that I must be a member to contact this individual whom is searching on my email. If infact s/he does even exist. Now the part about why I posted today.

    First has anybody used, seen, or even heard of this service?
    Secondly, isn't it possbile that this company harvest my email from somewhere. Did a search themselves and then told me about it in attempt to draw me into a registration with them? If you knew my email was 36739@sbcglobal.net it narrows down my isp a bit doesn't it?

    Here is the link they sent me via email.

    Kinda fishy isn't it?

    I've gotten those emails before, a few from word of mouth, and some from sites like them. I just leave them alone, ones i've gotten in the past are annoying:
    for each email you provide you get clues to the person who provided ur email!

    Your not the first person to ask about this bud. From the digging i did ( and it was a while ago) if yiou get far enough into the registration process it attempts to force a D/L for some spyware crap. I could be thinking of a diferent site but something tells me thats the right one. I will do some more digging when i have the time this weekend

    Anymore what doesn't install spyware. I didn't try and register with them, so I am not sure if it comes with spyware or not.

    lumpyporridge.......I had kind of figured it was a scam. What can't google find nowadays?

    Thank you all for your info and opinions.

    I used to get those emails regularly - I tried to contact the admin address in case it was a genuine site and they had made a mistake but I just got an automated response. In the end I just banned all email from @word-of-mouth.org/.com and some attglobal.net address they used as well.

    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.
