here is a cut and paste from a seemingly legit email I got from this site...

A new topic, 'Buy registered and fake passport, driver$entityConvert('’')s license, ID cards, ((docconsultancy99', has been made on a board you are watching.

You can see it at

More topics may be posted, but you won't receive more email notifications until you return to the board and read some of them.

I received the same email - at 5:53pm, Kansas time.  Glad I found your post, at first I thought it was just me.

I haven't gotten that e-mail; the only things I ever get from Craftster in my inbox are legit PM and/or friend request notices.  I primarily use Gmail these days and their spam filter is pretty good (I only get junk/trash e-mails there maybe once a week, if that).

My favorite scam e-mail that I ever got was, shortly after Michael Jackson's death, a notice that I was related to him and entitled to several millions from his estate.  Grin

Sorry about that! Sad  We deleted the topic and banned the account immediately after it posted.

You received it in your inbox because you are subscribed to get new topics from that specific board sent directly to your email automatically.  It wasn't an email that came from our newsletter/manual system.  We'd never personally send you yuck like that.  Just want to be sure you know it! Smiley

Our future home is Lettuce Craft!
Just... Let.Us.Craft.
