e-mail scam from woodnet? - JimDaddyO - 03-01-2017

I got an email today from a woodnet address and it says I requested bat house plans 3 days ago.  That they tried to send them, and had a clickable link to get them.  The address was info@woodnet.(or something).  Of course, I did not click it and blocked the sender as I know I didn't order this.  Any information on this?

i expect it's the woodnet plans guy.  It's not woodnet.   Somehow managed to get all of our email addresses. As a random coincidence, I just reported one of his emails to yahoo as spam

There's little to nothing we can do about it, unfortunately. Spammers know how to fake e-mail addresses using similar domain names, false display names, etc. Best thing you can do is keep reporting them to your e-mail provider as spam.

OK, thank you for clarifying for me.

I get a couple every day from that address. filtering them all to my spam box

Yep.

Have been getting emails from "the Woodnet plans guy", "Brian P".

He, she, or it is now spreading to some other email addresses I have though I have never opened, always marked as spam, if they don't already go to my spam folders, and then deleted all.

Aah well. Stupid person.

I got rid of the a-wipe for a while. He was on my google groups.
But he's back, filling up my spam box

Try going to google groups and undoing the groups. https://support.google.com/groups/answer/46608?hl=en

Then use "settings" on your email account and use a filter to block that email address.

Hopefully that will work for some but I no longer use Google.

I cringe and now use Yahoo. They are similarly leftist leaning and probably block out almost as many links that disagree with their pro-socialist BS agenda.

Anyone know of a better search engine that doesn't require constant caution, frequent disbelief, and reliance on friends to know what is going on in a specific area?
