Have others recieved this email

18 posts in this topic

I recieved an email from a guy named trevor stating that he is over at the "new" (Contact Us Please) fishing site. He says he wants to tell everyone about it and there is a hyperlink to the site. I really don't care about the e-mail (I've been there but FM blows them out of the water), but I am curious as to how he got my e-mail adress. I was wondering if anyone else recieved this e-mail?

I know for a fact that FM has never given away or sold any e-mail addresses... That is not our style.. the only thing I can think of is if you posted your e-mail in any of the posts? Also, some people have thier e-mail in their signatures.. that would be a dead give away as well.

Have you ever posted your e-mail address here before in a post? Or at any other outdoors related forum? Or registered at that site?

They've been known to troll the forums here looking for addresses, and then you get an e-mail. Part of their "guerilla" method of recruiting members.

Your registration with FM is safe, if that is what you are wondering. Nobody can get your address unless you post it online.

EDIT: Geez Deitz. We think alike! smile.gif

I got it as well. I assume he got the email addresses when you post your email to recieve pics of a for sale item. I know I have posted mine recently to have someone send me pics of a truck.

I have recieved those e-mails in the past only after I posted my e-mail address. I think the others are right, they troll looking for e-mail address's. You should have read the e-mail I sent him after I looked at their site. shocked.gif

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.

      Drove by Grays Bay this morning. The one and only house left has now partially fell thru. Not sure how this one is coming out.
