|It would not matter so much if it was not for the recent turn of events this past couple of weeks. But this just adds to everything else that is falling apart in my life.
Just received an email from ClassMates.com about a member seeking to find me. This member was using my wife's name and info, which may have been gotten from the BTHS Alumni Assoication. Other pieces can be gathered from other sources related to the school.
We all know that from my rants here, my wife's has been long since dead and buried for over 20+3 years now. Other problem is this individual is asking for other members & close friends who are also been dead for quite some time. I swear- this is a new on me- phishing for dead people's info.
I sent ClassMates.com a messsge through their stupid member supprt page and alerted them to what happened. I'm also writing to them at the address they provided on their hard to find 'About United Online' webpage. Hopefully some action can be taken and they'll get their act together. I also sent the BTHS Alumni Assoication an email to their board members to tighten up their security.
Right now I'm more upset than normal and I really did not need this to add to the fire.
Anybody using classmates.com , should go into their privacy profile page and set it accordingly.
