Today I received e-mail from Golden Bears 2010. We members all know this account is real. (yahoo.com.uk)
The subject was "fw:hello" and only URL link was written.
The link begins "www.seelenbuerste.de" and this site exists. But it redirected to the another URL. (weight loss supplements!!)
Very well-done fake. Be careful!

By the way, I checked the full header of that mail.
This e-mail reached to me via servers in Chile, Russia and USA.

Hello, I have been locked out of my account for a long time as I had forgotten my password. I had made another account (Gizalba2) so I was updating from there for a while, however I am back using this one now :)

TVs I still have whose owners have been absent for over a year:

Pengy, Tapsi and Jala

If any of these owners come back and would like me to post these guys back to you, please let me know!

I wonder, why do don't inform me about these things? I had no chance to go online due to my husbands illness - chemo again. So I only stumbled over this message here in the forum.

Please get in contact with me personally at once, after you received such a message
