so for the second time this month I have been getting a notice in my email that someone has written me a message. Now that is not the spam mind you. What I have been getting is
From: woodworkkkfs
Subject: Dear Woodworker, do you want to learn woodworking? or gain additional experience?
Good day, dear woodworker-participant lumberjocks com … and we want to encourage the retired master craftsman to finally reveal his secret archive over
16,000 plans – more details on the link

For internet safety I don’t click on any link I just log in go to messages and Viola No new message…
So with that I want to sincerely thank those who monitor and rid us of this spam.

That link has been on a number of woodworking groups on Facebook for a while now. It is a SPAM link.

I STRONGLY recommend you do NOT go there. Further, you may want to BLOCK that sender.

Cheers!

Key word is always 16,000. I think it means you and your wallet die 16,000 little deaths, from the information you are herded into giving this A$$ holey one, he steals your identity, and everything you ever worked for. Someone told this slimebag woodworkers are rich.

Yup. Got that one two days ago. Figured it was b/s or more crud from Ted the wood worker and his 500 plans.

Yeah I got one as well and blew it off at that old Ted woodworking crapola deal. He hit’s Lumberjocks several times a year.

Trust me you’ll get another in a year or so, guaranteed!

Yes. First one came Nov 23 from [email protected] . Another on the 24th from [email protected] Another one came this morning as a response to ‘scrollgirl’ (Sheila Landry) blog post a few years back about ‘Woodworking and Beyond #865: New Dimensional Ornaments’. Her post is legit of course, but the last response was that spam message. I flagged it. Maybe the web site owner can block the IP.
