My private email I use for my etsy shop, from an Email address labled: "firstname.lastname@example.org"
The subject line was: "Hi from ETSY" but it of course was not safely
Linked to etsy at all...
The email was as followed, and I did NOT click on any link, only b/c it was already weird. And I know not to click on links from weirdos asking
Me to log into anything with my personal info... please, if anyone can
Help it'd be great...
The other weird thing, is after I received this Email I was written by another
Etsy shop owner telling me of this same issue, as she too received this weird email, but that she thought it was originally addressed to me??? What??? Lol
I don't get any of this this morning. Lol
And the email from them, was actually in my etsy inbox legitimately. Lol
The following email is the private suspicious one I received:
"I saw your product on ETSY,i love thm,i am willing to patronise you .but i want to show you a product similar to what i saw on your shop on ETSY.
I took a picture of it then i uploaded on Gmail.
You will have to click or copy this link below to your web browser ,then you will log in to view the pics.
If you use yahoo you can click or copy this link to your web browser
If you use gmail use click or copy to your web browser
just click it or copy and paste to your web browser then you log in the page that comes up.
for your information the link works with virtually all email addresses,just log in with your usual email ID and Password,it will only redirect you to the picture page.
let me know if you got it i just want to know if you have something similar to that please reply as soon as you get this.
your customer in the making."
I need to know what's going on, and if this is an etsy based virus...
b/c it truly needs to stop ASAP!!! =(
All I know if you aren't ever supposed to click or log into anything you don't know,
I learned this the hard way a while back ago...
Thanks to anyone who helps...!
