Received the same message as the others, was from "Renefolalubn" on the 13th May.

Logged in the safe way via typing in the forum URL and logging in there, safe tip is never to click on any links even if legit, logged in to find no PMs. Fine by me and means spam is being dealt with and spam accounts are removed :) Good job admins!

Real or scam?

Postby Alvin Asby » Mon May 23, 2016 4:10 pm

I received an email or PM supposedly from MediaMonkey saying that I had won an Apple Watch, does anyone know if this is genuine or not? See below.

Just trying to be careful.

Thanks

You win Apple Watch Sport at MediaMonkey!

I looked at the header of mine (received today) and it says it's from:

C:\Windows\system32>nslookup 173.231.130.160
Server: my.isp.net
Address: x.x.x.x

Name: mail.mediamonkey.com
Address: 173.231.130.160
Aliases: 160.130.231.173.in-addr.arpa

Fake dns sever name in my nslookup. The address is right from the header. No other intermediate hops.

Yeah, not looking good.

The email is from MediaMonkey. However the email is a notification of a PM on the forum. The forum PM is spam, thus the information in the email is spam too.

Hi,
we cleared any PMs from false users. Can you give us timestamp of email you received as no such messages should arrive in past 7 days?
Best regards,
