Someone May Be Stealing My Idenitity

April 28, 2009

I recently received an email asking me to confirm my request to join a Yahoo group. I made no such request, so I’m wondering if someone is using my Missives from Marx email address to join internet groups or post stuff here and there. If any of you—yes, you 3 people who read my blog—see MfM saying weird stuff on blogs or discussion boards, I’d appreciate it if you let me know!

I assume it was probably some sort of spamming program that did it, but I could be wrong.

Really, I want to be wrong about that, right? If someone went to all the trouble to pose as me on the internet, then I must be important! Narcissism strikes again!

    You only need to worry once your phantom self starts up a fight club

    Well it wasn’t me. But now I feel like “crap he’ll think it was me because I was talking to him the other day”.

    Probably robots can pick up your address from the way its written on here.

    Sophia: Don’t worry, I didn’t think it was you!

    I’ve gotten similar emails in my yahoo accounts. I think it’s a fairly normal kind of spam.

    That’s good to hear. Sort of. Ruins the narcissistic hopes.
