I have heard from several people about a Robert contacting members wanting their email address or Yahoo Instant Messenger ID and giving out a yahoo address. Some have gotten almost the same message from a Jessica. If you have, or if you do get one in the future, please forward it to me and I will block that account and report them to meetup. You can do the same. At the bottom of all messages sent through Meetup, there is a link with this sentence: To report abuse or block this person, please click here. In addition you can restrict who can email you and send you greetings from Meetup. To do that:
Log In to Meetup at Meetup.com
Place your mouse cursor on "Account" in the upper right
Then, mouse down and click on "Email and Notifications"
Scroll to the bottom and you will see:
"Who can contact you on the site?"
"Who can post Greetings on your profile?"
You can choose:
Members of my Meetups or
Any member of Meetup.
There are a number of check boxes on this page, that you might want to select or deselect as well. One of note being "Weekly Personal Calendar" a once-weekly email of your Meetups and top Meetups in your area.
Be forewarned that it isn't hard for anyone to join the group, email and greet people, then leave the group, and possibly even close out the meetup account. I'm not sure what they are after, aside from getting your email address to send spam and sellyou something, probably questionable dating sites with fees, but we will do what we can to minimize that element, while also doing what we can to help prospective members find the group and hopefully find some quality support in our meetings.
Feel free to email me or message me about any concern.
